Congress Authorizes GSA to Start Alabama Federal Courthouse Construction

Congress has authorized the General Services Administration to start acquisition, construction and design work on a $38.2 million project to build a new federal courthouse in Alabama.

GSA said Thursday the 63,000-square-foot federal courthouse will include two courtrooms, three chambers and other court related tenants from the U.S. Marshals Services and U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The agency has narrowed down the location of the courthouse, that will accommodate three judges, to three potential sites including Block 148, Block 149 and Block 151/159.

“The authorization allows GSA to move forward on this courthouse identified by the federal judiciary as a priority in the FY16 Omnibus Spending Bill,” said Mike Goodwin, GSA Public Buildings Service Regional Commissioner for the Southeast Sunbelt region.

“This investment will help GSA support the judiciary’s mission while spurring local economic development.”
