Karen Pan reported to Historic City News that due to ongoing Courthouse renovations, the Richard O. Watson Judicial Center in St. Johns County will experience two changes affecting public access.
First, beginning Monday, April 5, all in-bound traffic entering the Courthouse Complex from Lewis Speedway will travel further than previously required on the loop road to reach the Parking Lot Entrance on the east side of the complex.
Secondly, beginning Monday, April 12, the ONLY pedestrian public entry into the Courtyard and Courthouse will be through the north entry doors. This is a new entry point and will be the security screening location for all in-bound personnel.
The previous entry on the south side of the Courthouse will be closed for approximately eight months.
Public cooperation is appreciated during this time of transition. Anyone with questions is recommended to contact the office you are visiting prior to your arrival or call the main County switchboard at (904) 209-0655.
