SCI Frackville

State Correctional Institution – Frackville is a maximum-security correctional facility for males off Interstate 81 in Ryan Township in rural Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, on the outskirts of Frackville and about 40 miles (64 km) northwest of Reading. In 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections considered closing the prison, as part of an attempt by the state government to reduce the state's budget deficit. However, the prison was spared closure. Had SCI - Frackville closed it would likely have dealt a significant blow to the local economy, as it employs over 400 staff.
