After allowing media outlets to tour the state’s new $50 million prison in early November, the Arizona Department of Corrections has officially opened the new section of the Lewis Prison Complex in Buckeye.
Construction on the new Forsyth County Justice Center in Cummings is currently on track to debut this spring. The design includes a five-story courthouse and adjacent jail, both of which are being built to enhance security as well as be flexible for expansion.
Construction work began earlier this month on the about $332 million prison in Wrexham after Wrexham Council’s planning committee approved plans for the prison on Nov. 3. The super prison will be the largest in England and Wales and will house 2,100 Category C male offenders.
