WILBER, Neb.-- Saline County plans to build a $4.1 million addition to its historic courthouse in Wilber.

The county commissioners approved the project this spring. Officials say the addition will satisfy requirements for safety, security and accessibility while maintaining the integrity of revival-style courthouse, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

An elevator will provide access to all floors of the building, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a second staircase and fire exit will comply with current codes. The addition is also intended to improve security and will include handicapped-accessible restrooms.

Once the design of the addition is finalized, officials hope to select a contractor by mid-August. Groundbreaking is set for Oct. 1.
