Jackson Street lane to close until 2025 for Bartholomew courthouse work

The north lane of Jackson Street behind the Bartholomew County courthouse in downtown Columbus will be closing for more than a year.

The Columbus Board of Public Works and Safety approved a request from the county commissioners yesterday to close the sidewalk and north lane starting Monday and lasting through April of next year. Commissioners say that the area is being closed because it will be needed for storage of materials during renovations at the courthouse.

There will be a temporary chain link fence installed and the courthouse lawn will have posts with snow fencing to keep people away from the storage area. A Road Closed sign will also be installed at Jackson and Second Streets.
