LAFAYETTE, Ind, (WLFI) — Construction on the Tippecanoe County Courthouse is nearly complete.

You may have seen workers doing a lot of cleanup and touch-up work earlier today.

Construction on the outside of the courthouse is expected to wrap-up this month.

However, Tippecanoe County Commissioner Tracy Brown says the lighting portion of the project will not be finished until after the first of the year.

He says they've been testing out different ideas with lighting to get it right.

Before construction, the dome was lit by lights posted on top of buildings across the street.

This project will include lighting on the courthouse itself.

Here's what Brown thinks about the construction.

"I'm happy with the appearance, I'm happy with the project overall, I'd been happier if it was done six months ago," said Brown.

However, he understands weather plays a factor in these types of projects.

Now, the community can look forward to plans to renovate the inside of the courthouse in the near future.
