Northwoods jail renovations near completion

Posted:
PHILLIPS, Wis. (WAOW) -

The Price County jail is done with the first phase of its jail renovation project.

The construction will restrict inmates to one floor, rather than having them separated between three floors.

Officials said the old setup was a safety hazard.

"Very inconvenient," said Chief Deputy Brian Roush. "We had inmate movement that wasn't safe, it was intermixing with the public at times, with administration and staff of the office."

The next phase is set to finish up in June.
