Final inmates leaving Durham prison
Posted September 20, 2011
Durham, N.C. — The 20 inmates remaining in Durham Correctional Center will be moved from the state prison Thursday morning, officials said Tuesday.
Durham Correctional, a 216-bed minimum security prison, is slated to close Oct. 1. It's one of four prisons the Department of Correction is closing by December because of budget cuts.
The prison, off Guess Road, dates to 1925. State officials haven't announced plans for the property.
