BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) – After several years of being closed for renovations, the doors to a Region 8 courthouse are now open.

The Mississippi County Courthouse in Blytheville reopened on Monday, Sept. 19, and is now handicap accessible.

Renovations on the facility began in 2020 after 72% of voters approved a plan a year earlier to renovate the courthouse.

Judge John Nelson said supply chain issues and weather issues contributed to delays with the project.

During the construction, the county government had to work at a temporary courthouse in Burdette as well as the courthouse in Osceola.
