Bridgeport Correctional Center

 

Built in the 1930’s, the Bridgeport Jail House is a very easily seen landmark on North St. in Bridgeport. Its primary purpose has been and continues to be the temporary detention of un-adjudicated persons prior to hearings or sentencing. The updated building has met and exceeded current codes for Energy Efficiency, as well as increased the Security and Safety of both the detainees and the staff alike. This new renovated structure has achieved several goals. Not only dramatically improving the look of the structure to the adjacent community, the new pitched roof can survive the rain, snow and ice of our climate to which the old flat roof was succumbing. The $7,350,000.00 project started March 2012 and was completed within one year.
