State court officials are planning a Monday reopening for parts of the Fayette County Circuit Courthouse, which has been closed for nearly two weeks due to flooding caused by a broken valve in a bathroom.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/16SzjDO ) reports most of the first and fourth floors, plus two courtrooms, will be accessible to the public starting Monday.

Fayette Circuit Clerk Vincent Riggs said Friday his office will operate in temporary quarters at the Fayette District Courthouse and won't move back into the circuit court building until Wednesday.

The circuit court building in Lexington has been closed since Oct. 21, when the broken valve sent water flooding through the building. The flooding caused extensive damage.

State officials say some parts of the building may not reopen for four to six weeks.
