Lawmakers to review prison expansion project


PHOENIX (AP) - Expansion of the Lewis state prison complex in Buckeye would be accomplished through five separate bid packages under a plan submitted for review by a legislative oversight committee.

The project involves adding 500 new beds for male maximum-security inmates at a project cost of $50 million.

The Department of Administration say dividing the overall project into separate contracts for differ parts should help get it done faster and at less expense.

Under the Department of Administration's plan, separate bids would be sought for precast concrete modular cell units and site work.

Separate bids also would be sought for additional housing unit work, wastewater plant improvements and improvements to the prison's existing kitchen.

The Joint Committee on Capital Review will review the plan on Tuesday.
