KAILUA-KONA >> Hawaii court officials have announced plans to converge operations in a newly built courthouse expected to open this week.

West Hawaii Today reported Thursday that the new Keahuolu Courthouse is expected to open Tuesday for its first day of official court operations on the Big Island.

Officials say the $95.8 million courthouse will bring together all Family, Circuit and District courts cases that were operating out of three sites in north and south Kona.

Officials say the three-story 140,000-square-foot judiciary complex is expected to have five courtrooms, a law library, a traffic violations bureau, a grand jury room, a jury deliberations room, and more.

Judges say attorneys and their clients have been informed of the move and that their cases would be heard at the new location.
