FORT MADISON, Iowa -- Construction problems keep getting worse at Iowa's new prison in Fort Madison.
The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports the ventilation system in one of the buildings isn't working. That's on top of problems with the heating and cooling system, the smoke evacuation system, and a leaky roof.
The prison was supposed to cost $132 million but expenses have topped $166 million and they're still climbing.
The new prison was originally scheduled to open this spring, but because of the problems with construction officials still don’t know when inmates will be able to be transferred from the old prison.
