Tomochichi Federal Building and Savannah U.S. Courthouse
In 2016, GSA announced Congress appropriated funds for multiple federal courthouse construction projects across the nation, including modernizing the historic Tomochichi Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Savannah, Georgia, to meet the U.S. Judiciary’s current and long-term needs for security, accessibility and operational efficiency.
The stabilization and debris removal related to the floor collapse at Tomochichi U.S. Courthouse that occurred on April 11, 2023 is complete. The original scope of the renovation project has resumed, with rebuilding of the damaged area and tower work expected to restart in November 2023. GSA is working with the contractor to develop an updated project schedule, which should be available in early 2024.
Other road closures and lane shifts currently in place include:
- The 00 block of West York Street, where the south side through-lane will shift through the parking lane until March 13, 2024, to provide a safe area for courthouse scaffold construction, deliveries, and material hoisting.
