In 2017, Mono County obtained a grant from the California “Board of State and Community Corrections” (BSCC) for $25,000,000 to build a new jail in Bridgeport, California.

To date, Mono County has worked to complete the required site due diligence, and worked with the State Public Works Board and the BSCC to obtain project establishment. (October 2022).

Mono County hired Lionakis, an expert in Corrections facility design, to design the jail and final site improvements.

Mono County hired Kitchell to act as the county’s representative in the construction process as a construction manager. They will stay on until the end of the project and perform the commissioning process, which verifies all building operations.

Mono County Public Works will provide a recurring update on the Mono County Jail Project at the first Board of Supervisors Meeting each month.
