Stockton courthouse construction unofficially underway

Stockton courthouse construction unofficially underway


STOCKTON - Streets are torn up and traffic has been interrupted in downtown Stockton for what court officials call "pre" construction of a new courthouse.

The courthouse is being built in what used to be Hunter Square, where parking existed for the current courthouse. The 13-story building will be the tallest in San Joaquin County when it opens in the fall of 2016.

The $200 million building is financed through a state courthouse construction fund. Fees and fines have been raised for years to pay for projects like the one in Stockton.

Weber Avenue in that part of Stockton has been partially blocked for work done by PG&E.
