Courthouse renovations hit a snag

Work on improving Tulsa Courthouse entrances hits a snag. While digging in front of the County Courthouse on Denver Avenue, construction crews discovered an old diesel fuel tank that everyone had forgotten was there. County Commission Chief Deputy Mark Liotta says the Department of Environmental Quality will have to inspect the tank and determine any issues that need to be fixed before it can be removed.

Liotta says it will delay the project for two or three weeks and will add to the cost of the entryway renovations. The work should still be completed before the end of the year, and should not impact people entering or leaving the courthouse.
