The construction of a 2,040 bed, medium security prison in Trousdale County will provide approximately 300 temporary jobs in skilled trades and general labor this summer.
The announcement by CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) last Friday, February 29, that construction on the prison would begin this summer came after a year of negotiations with Trousdale County and Four Lakes Regional Industrial Authority.
The prison, which will be called the Trousdale County Correctional Center, will be built on 106 acres in the Four Lake Regional Industrial Development Authority’s PowerCom Industrial Park, which is located at the old Hartsville Nuclear Plant site. CCA purchased the land from Four Lake for $350,000.
