As of July 2013, Wake County moved its criminal courthouse from the previous courthouse on Fayetteville Street.
The new courthouse (called the Wake County Justice Center) has many more elevators, has escalators to lower level floors, and, best of all, a lot of natural light.
The old courthouse will be dedicated to mostly civil matters, and is undergoing its own partial remodeling.
The new Wake County Justice Center is laid out differently from the old courthouse.
