Jackson Co. Adult Detention Center is Halfway Done

Despite weather delays, the Jackson County Adult Detention Center is almost halfway done. That’s the latest report from Program Manager, Jeff May, at Monday’s Board of Supervisors meeting in Pascagoula.

The multi-million dollar jail is expected to be up and running by summer and is supposed to be able to withstand 150 mile per hour winds, a safety plus during hurricane season. Work over the past few months has been mostly underground, but now the actual facility is actually starting to take shape.

May says, “The first couple months, all the work was underground, so once the foundation is complete, we’ll pour the slabs and start erecting steel and coming out of the ground, so now the public can actually see what the jail’s gonna’ look like.”

Alabama based Caddell Construction was awarded nearly $30 million in December of last year to build the new jail.
