Bledsoe County Correctional Complex

The Bledsoe County Correctional Complex is a state prison in Pikeville, Bledsoe County, Tennessee, owned and operated by the Tennessee Department of Corrections.[1] The facility opened in 2013. As an intake and diagnostic facility, Bledsoe County houses a mix of inmate security levels: 300 minimum security beds, 1024 medium, 192 close, and 24 maximum security, for a total capacity of 1540.[2] The only access to the $208 million complex of 23 buildings is an entry tunnel, allowing an uninterrupted perimeter fence. Individual pre-cast cells, of 80 square feet, were fully assembled off-site and then stacked by crane. The architects were the DLR Group.[3] The former Southeastern Tennessee State Regional Correctional Facility, built in 1980 with 971 beds, stands intact immediately adjacent to the new facility. It was re-designated as the BCCC Annex. Neither facility should be confused with the Bledsoe County Detention Center on Allen Deakins Road, which opened in 2011 as a county jail.
