Demolition of the old Rogers County Courthouse is underway.
DT Specialized Services, Inc. started exterior demolition Wednesday by tearing down the one story addition of the building.
The company was awarded the bid on Aug. 19 at a cost of $150,665.10.
The project is estimated to take about 30 days. The interior of the building has been under demolition for approximately one week, according to maintenance director Ryan Baze.
The exterior work will include the removal of several bricks to be donated to local restoration projects.
Once the project is complete, Flintco will work with the commissioners to construct the new courthouse plaza and parking. Plans for the plaza have not been released at this time.
