A view of the new Correctional Facility for Women in Concord. The prison, which is next to the men's prison, is scheduled to open in the fall.
Construction on the 224-bed women's prison is on schedule to be completed this fall. The department is unsure, however, how quickly it will be able to hire the roughly 80 officers it needs to guard the female inmates.
