For a number of
years a jail expansion project has been in the works. In 2013
construction begin at Washington County Sheriff's Dept. The
expansion will increase the housing capability of the Detention
Center from 60 to approximately 240 inmates.
The new construction is the bold portion of the plan on the
left in above diagram.
The cells are prefabricated steel pods
manufactured in Georgia and hauled in three to four on a semi.
They are then stacked in the interior of the outer building
shell. The cells will eventually be fitted tightly together and welded.
There will be a central control center "tower"
located approximately where the construction worker with the
tripod is standing. There will be dividing walls that
break up the jail into smaller cell blocks.
The cells are on two levels, an enclosed walk way will be
constructed to access the second level.

The control room or "Tower" stands in the
center of the facility and has clear view of all cell doors and controls
access into or out of individual cells or cell blocks.
Interior walls, stairs, and upper deck walkways are being installed.
