ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - The federal courthouse in Aberdeen could be re-opened for court proceedings as early as 2021.
Contractors announced work will begin soon to remove mold from the Thomas G. Abernethy Federal Building in downtown Aberdeen.
The $12 million project will include the replacement of all infected components of the building’s HVAC system.
Court proceedings were moved away from the building in 2017 for health and safety concerns.
Judge Sharion Aycock said court proceedings continued at the bankruptcy building across town.
Construction at the federal courthouse is expected to begin in the coming weeks.
The work is scheduled to be completed by fall 2020.
