County jail set to start $90 million in renovations on March 1

The Clark County Detention Center will begin its four-year renovation process March 1.

During the renovations, the approximately 370 inmates along with correctional staff within the North Tower Bureau will be moved into other areas within CCDC.

Visitation timelines may have change to due to the relocation requirements.

The renovation process is estimated to cost about $90 million. The budget was approved by the Clark County Board of Commissioners in October, and is separate from CCDC’s annual operating budget.

The county did an assessment of the facility between August 2009 and October 2010. During that time, in November 2009, condenser water lines failed, requiring an emergency repair that showed the wear of the 1982 building.

The project is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31, 2017.
