Demolition of Old Midland County Courthouse Underway

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Demolition of the old Midland County Courthouse is underway.

The crew working to tear the courthouse down has already made a lot of progress.

When NewsWest9 stopped by on Thursday, about a fourth of the building had been demolished and a lot of debris is sitting at the site.

The city says it will be messy and noisy for a while and they are asking for your patience.

Items from inside the courthouse have been salvaged.

The more valuable ones were auctioned off.

Officials say the demolition is costing around $6 million.
