DENTON - The first phase of the $26.7 million expansion and renovation of the Denton County Jail is well underway and should be completed in September.
The project includes 87,000 sf of new construction and more than 2,800 sf of renovation. The new four-story building is being constructed and will feature 384 beds in single, double and open dormitory-style cells.
An express corridor will connect the new building to the existing pre-trial building and the old jail. The jail will be half-full when inmates and staff are moved to the facility in September.
Satterfield & Pontikes Construction (S&P) is serving as the general contractor, while HDR is serving as the architect.
