KINGMAN – After years of planning and multiple project reconfigurations, an addition to the Mohave County Courthouse in downtown Kingman could go vertical early next year.

Officials are reviewing plans for construction of a four-story structure that will provide 66,400 square feet of new space next to the historic courthouse.


Mohave County Facilities Manager John Mieding, who is the current manager for the courthouse addition, said it is expected that the project will be put out to bid this fall after the plans are approved. He said initial construction is targeted next January or February and that it will take 18-24 months to complete the work.

Operations housed in the historic courthouse will be transitioned into the addition once it is ready for occupancy.

Mieding said an extensive remodeling campaign will then unfold in the old courthouse.

Justice Court operations located in another building on Andy Devine Avenue will be moved to the old courthouse once renovations are finished. Mediation and CASA staff and functions will also move in.

The addition carries an estimated $18 million price tag and the remodel is estimated at $2 million.
