Snake River Correctional Institution (SRCI) is a multi-security facility which opened in August 1991. Although sited for 3,000 beds, only 576 medium security and seventy-two minimum security beds were constructed in Phase I. In 1994, the Oregon Legislature approved construction of the remaining 2,352 beds at a cost of $175 million, representing the largest single general-funded public works project in state history. Construction was completed in 1998.
