Posted: Updated:
Grayson County -

The River North Correctional Center in Grayson County is finally opening its doors after sitting empty for nearly three years.

Governor Bob McDonnell will cut the ribbon on the $104 million prison Wednesday at 2 p.m.

Grayson County leaders estimate the prison could add as many as 350 new jobs to the community.

There's no word on how soon the prison will be fully operational or when inmates will be moved in.
