According to state officials, the new state prison being built near Salt Lake City International Airport is expected to be done by the end of 2020. However, despite the facility having been completed by that point, it is still estimated that inmates will not be moved into the facility until 2021. Officials anticipate that it will take a total of six months to relocate all the prisoners to the new facility from the current one in Draper.
The prison is expected to hold 4,000 beds, despite the prison population size decreasing.
