Today marked the official groundbreaking of the new Northumberland County Prison in Coal Township, PA.

CGL provided the initial needs assessment and programming services for the county in 2015. The new facility serves to replace the county’s previous prison located in Sunbury, which was heavily damaged in a fire in January 2015. Construction is expected to last about a year, with the prison scheduled to open in June 2018.
