A ceremony was held today to kick off the Department of Juvenile Justice’s construction project for a regional youth detention center in Terrell County.

In addition, a new 54 bed housing unit will be constructed on the site. The 51,473 GSF multi-building complex will cost $11.579 million and is scheduled for completion in September 2016.
