Sheriff’s Office Announces Temporary Closure
of the Judicial Center’s Maryland Avenue Entrance
Montgomery County Sheriff Darren M. Popkin has announced that due to construction on the Judicial Center Annex project, the current Maryland Avenue entrance into the Montgomery County Judicial Center is tentatively scheduled to be closed starting on or about September 10, 2012. In addition, one security screening area and the media area will be closed. The construction activity is scheduled to be completed in about 6 months.
All Sheriff’s sales and other legal auctions have moved to the Judicial Center’s Monroe Street Entrance. Attorney, law enforcement, juror, employee and all other pedestrian access to the Judicial Center will be exclusively through the Monroe Street or Montgomery County Executive Office Building cafeteria entrances.
Judicial Center Annex Project
The Judicial Center Annex project involves an addition to and renovation of the existing Judicial Center. The Judicial Center Annex is a six story building with one level of underground parking and a one level mechanical penthouse. The Annex provides ten additional courtrooms and administrative spaces. The project is designed to comply with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines for LEED Silver (potentially Gold certification) which includes a green roof and roof mounted photovoltaic panels.
The project consists of three phases. Phase one includes the existing Judicial Center HVAC renovation for floors 6-9 and the penthouse roof. Phase two includes the construction of the Annex and the phase three encompasses the interior renovation and upgrades of the remaining area of the existing Judicial Center.
