The last beam for Saginaw County’s new jail was placed atop the structure on Tuesday, May 7, symbolizing the halfway mark of the multi-million dollar project.

The new Saginaw County Adult Detention Center, located directly across from the old jail at 208 S. Harrison St., is beginning to take shape.

On Tuesday, Saginaw County leaders signed their names on the final beam placed atop the new structure to make their mark on a project that has been in the works for several years.

“From a historical standpoint having names on the last beam shows the significance of all the people who have worked on this project, since it’s been in the works for seven years,” Saginaw Commission Chairman Michael Webster said.

The $35.8 million jail will house 511 inmates, said Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel.
