INDEPENDENCE — Plenty of changes are evident at the 252,088-square-foot state prison being built outside of Independence since The Gazette last visited in February.
Doyle Sandifer, assistant superintendent of the project, took The Gazette on a third tour of the prison site last week.
Changes since the February visit include:
• all buildings are now under roof.
• paint is going on several interior walls. Walls will be white, with all metals painted a dark shade of red called "Sun Dried Tomato."
