Old graves keep public from new court site
Prying eyes won't be welcome for at least a year at the downtown site of a future joint Justice Court/City Court complex on Stone Avenue.
Certainly not when archaeologists are uncovering graves in the former city cemetery where the new court complex will sit..
Out of respect for the deceased and their relatives who may still live in the Old Pueblo, access to the 4.1-acre site will be restricted to official business until after workers exhume the bodies, store them, learn their identities and rebury them in another cemetery.

That seems a little extreme to me.
