Marion Superior Court will begin its phased move from the City-County Building to the new Community Justice Campus over the next two weeks, starting on Monday, it announced Wednesday.

The court said all non-jury, in-person court matters, with the exception of juvenile delinquency cases, will begin taking place Monday at the campus’ new courthouse at 675 Justice Way in the Twin Aire neighborhood, three miles from downtown.

Beginning May 9, all in-person court matters, including jury trials (except juvenile delinquency cases) will begin taking place at the new courthouse. Juvenile delinquency cases will continue to be heard at 2451 N. Keystone Ave.

Once the phased move-in is complete, all of the Marion Superior Court operations—with the exception of the Marion County Probation Department and Juvenile Detention Center—will be located at the Community Justice Campus, along with the Marion County Circuit Court, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the Adult Detention Center and the Assessment and Intervention Center, or AIC.

The Marion County Probation Department will have staff at both the Community Justice Campus and the City-County Building.

The new facility will have 71 courtrooms overseen by 36 superior court judges, one circuit court judge and 45 magistrate judges.

The court said it encourages the public to check for specific details of court proceedings.

Parking information for the new center can be found here.

The courts had planned to move to the $590 million Community Justice Campus at the end of 2021 or early 2022, with the main courthouse later rescheduled to move the first week of February and conclude by the end of that month. But COVID-related delays changed those plans in December. More than 200 employees began moving to the campus this month.

  1. What a corny address! Why wouldn’t it have sufficed to address it as 3000 Prospect Street, 3001 Southeastern Avenue or some such that might actually help indicate to people where exactly it is located? There is no actual street called Justice Way. This sounds like something you’d find built in a sea of cornfields where there aren’t any actual streets (no offense intended to cornfields).

  2. Now might not be the best time to check it out. Southeastern is a total mess with traffic lines going missing on several stretches, very narrow lanes with sharp curves and steep drop offs. The street in front of Kroger was full of potholes. Maybe wait until you have to go or they get Southeastern rebuilt. This is what I found today.
