County Courthouse renovations nearing completionThe county's courthouses are getting a facelift. Improvements to Berkshire County's Superior, District, and Family and Probate Courts in Pittsfield are nearly complete, according to Kevin Flanagan, a spokesperson for the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management, which is overseeing the projects. The holding cells at both the Superior Court, located at 76 East St., and the District Court, located at 24 Wendell Ave., are being modernized to meet safety and security requirements, Flanagan said. Accessibility improvements for the disabled are being made, including the construction of a ramp at both courthouses. The District Court has a temporary, wooden ramp at this time. Pay phones, rest rooms and water fountains are being made accessible as well, he said.
