CCA moving forward with plans for Trousdale Co. prison

Posted: Updated:
HARTSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Nashville-based Corrections Corporation of America is restarting plans for a prison in Trousdale County.

In 2008, before the recession hit, CCA had plans for a correctional facility in Hartsville, but it was put on hold until a government partner could be identified.

Five years later, the Tennessee Department of Correction is telling Trousdale County it's ready to build.

The company's senior director of public affairs says county officials continue to be supportive in the process.

As for a timeline, that's one of many things that haven't been nailed down yet.

They say to expect a more detailed announcement in the coming weeks.
