New Harrisburg U.S. Courthouse

U.S. Courthouse Project, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) will build a new U.S. Courthouse in the City of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The existing Ronald Reagan Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Harrisburg does not meet the federal government's security and expansion requirements. The four courtrooms of the 1960s era Reagan Building are not enough to accommodate the increasing caseload of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg.

The new 243,000 gross square foot courthouse will be located at 6th and Reily Streets in Harrisburg, PA. This courthouse will contain a total of eight courtrooms and eleven chambers. Tenants for this new courthouse are the Pennsylvania 3rd Circuit U.S. Courts, U.S. Courts, U.S. Marshal Service, U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Trustees.
