Phase One of the Bucks County Judicial Center construction project reached a sun-splashed conclusion this morning as Commissioner Chairman Charles H. Martin and Commissioner James F. Cawley, Esq. joined President Judge Susan D. Scott, Doylestown Borough officials and project contractors to cut the ribbon on the new Judicial Center Parking Garage. The 1,200-space, four-level facility is located between Union and Doyle streets, adjacent to Broad St. The $22-million garage required 18 months to complete, with the project coming in “on time, under budget, and with less than one-percent change orders,” in the words of Chairman Martin.
