The Mitchell Courthouse is set to reopen Wednesday after being closed for weeks due to damage caused by a fire.

The courthouse will reopen to the public at 8:30 a.m.

Circuit Court staff returned to work Tuesday to prepare for the reopening. The courthouse has been closed since a fire broke out on April 26.

“The scope of work undertaken by DGS and its contractors has been truly remarkable.  An extraordinary effort has been devoted to restoring the courthouse to functionality,” Baltimore City Administrative Judge W. Michel Pierson said in a news release. “Our judges, clerks, and staff have shown great dedication and flexibility as we have strived to continue to offer crucial court services to the public.  We are also grateful to jurors and people who have business with the court for their patience and understanding during this time.”
