Construction reaches near on correctional facility in Priestville

Nova Scotia

Construction nears completion on the Northeast Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Priestville, reports New Glasgow News.

Because of the nature of correctional facilities, new ones aren’t built often, which makes this project unique especially considering the size.

“It’s very challenging and very rewarding to be part of this process,” Tim Carroll said.

In November of 2010, the Department of Justice announced construction plans for a new 100-cell correctional facility in Priestville. The facility is being built near Priestville, next to Highway 104, east of Thorburn highway Exit 26. The site will provide quick and easy access to medical, police, fire and other services. Replacing the aging Antigonish and Cumberland facilities, the new facility will service the courthouses in Truro, Amherst, New Glasgow, Pictou, Antigonish, and, to some extent, Port Hawkesbury.
