GSA studies prices to build courthouse in Harrisburg

The U.S. General Services Administration is close to completing a study that compares the costs of the two possible sites for the new federal courthouse in Harrisburg.

The U.S. General Services Administration is close to completing a study that compares the costs of the two possible sites for the new federal courthouse in Harrisburg.

That’s according to a statement given yesterday by U.S. General Services Regional Administrator Barbara L. Shelton.

Shelton responded to language inserted into a spending bill that Congress passed Tuesday.

The bill requires the GSA to analyze the costs of the two sites where the $130 million courthouse could be built. One site is at Third and Walnut streets, home of the current courthouse. The other is at Sixth and Reily streets.

The bill prohibits the GSA from continuing site-acquisition work until the analysis is turned in, Shelton said.

Shelton was directed Oct. 1 to conduct a full study of the two sites, she said. The study will include an economic-impact report by an independent third party, she said.
