Carlyle Courthouse Construction – Update

The long-delayed project to remove the temporary security measures around the Federal Courthouse in Carlyle and install new, more permanent security measures is continuing with a projected completion this fall.

See the video from the May 2012 meeting of the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) to see what the final project will look like at the courthouse.

Some of the improvements include:

  • Removal of jersey barriers around the Courthouse
  • The installation of garden walls and secure bollards around the site.
  • The movement of existing parking spaces from Jamieson Ave to Elizabeth Lane.
  • The reopening of Courthouse Square to one-way traffic.
    • This includes pop-up bollards on Courthouse Square which can be popped up in case of an event at the courthouse.

Currently, excavation is continuing around the courthouse with new bollards being installed and storm water relocation about to get underway.

Here’s a shot from the site on the Jamieson Avenue side of the project.
