County Buildings' Accessibility Restored

County Buildings' Accessibility Restored

Two projects that restore full accessibility to Washington County government buildings have been completed.
The Washington County Engineering Department reports that the County Courthouse Annex Building accessible entrance at 24 Summit Avenue has been reopened, and a new ADA compliant elevator servicing the Old Courthouse and the Annex is in Operation as of Tuesday, December 5, 2006.
In addition, the elevator in the County Administration building at 100 West Washington Street, which has been under repair for several months, has reopened for public use, effective December 5.
The Summit Avenue Entrance had been closed for two years, while renovation work was being done to the Annex building. During that project an elevator was installed that connects all floors of the Annex and the Courthouse buildings, replacing a smaller elevator car in the Courthouse proper.
The temporary accessible entrance on the West Washington Street side of the Courthouse will be removed, starting Tuesday, December 19, 2006.
The Summit Avenue entrance is the official Accessible Entrance for the two buildings. Persons who have disabilities will need to use that entrance. In addition to the elevator a new ramp and doors at the entrance will improve accessibility.
Washington County makes all programs and services available to and usable by all citizens.
For additional information call the Washington County Office on Disability Issues at 240-313-2077.
