State Penitentiary Problems

RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — A new report suggests construction problems at the Wyoming State Penitentiary were caused by poor construction techniques.

The problems have caused portions of the prison to lift, walls to crack and masonry work to crumble.

According to the Rawlins Daily Times (http://tinyurl.com/gsf66xs ), fixing the problems would cost more than $84 million.

A task force is examining possibilities for a renovation project for the Rawlins prison or building a new prison at a different location for $170 million.
