Department of Corrections Moving on Prison Construction

Cheyenne, Wy – The state Department of Corrections has chosen architects to provide conceptual drawings and cost estimates for proposed prison expansion projects.
G-S-G Architecture of Casper and Reilly Johnson Architecture of Denver were selected to help the state plan for expansion of prisons at Riverton and Lusk.
The Legislature in its last session authorized planning for an additional 59 beds at the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton and 108 beds at the Wyoming Women's Center in Lusk, plus expanded rehabilitation programs.
Corrections Department Director Bob Lampert says he hopes to have an analysis completed in time for the 2004 Legislature.
He says the expansions must include space to provide quality treatment and training programs for Wyoming inmates once they are returned from other states.
