New Saginaw County Jail Aims for November 2019 Opening
SAGINAW, Mich. — Following years of planning, work on a new $35.8 million Saginaw County jail is about to begin.
County and city officials took part in a groundbreaking for the Saginaw County Adult Detention Center on May 21, according to reports from Michigan’s MLive.com and local affiliates of ABC 12 WJRT and WEYI –MiNBC 25 News .
Construction for the jail is reportedly set to begin this month and be wrapped by November 2019. The new facility will host 511 inmates. It will be staffed by 43 or 44 correctional officers, instead of the 63 that ran the original jail, according to reports. The new jail will be a direct-observation layout, and due to this design, officers will be able to manage and see the same number of individuals with fewer staff.
Saginaw’s Spence Brothers is the construction manager for the project, and Goldberg Group Architects (GGA), based out of Missouri, designed the jail.
