Rowan County Detention Center

Project Description

Trace Creek has a proud history of constructing judicial, police, fire and detention detention facilities across the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Trace Creek was named as construction manager for the new Rowan County Detention Center, which is designed to alleviate the overcrowding issues in the aging current jail, which has room for approximately 140 inmates. When finished, the new detention center will have the capacity to house over 300 inmates.

During the construction phase, a new law was passed that mandated last-minute changes to the design of the jail. Trace Creek is adept at adjusting construction schedules and plans when necessary, and modified the approach quickly to accommodate the required changes.
