Kansas City, KS - Wyandotte County broke ground on a new juvenile justice center this morning.

The new 47-thousand square foot building is expected to open in 2020 at the cost of $27.2 million.

The facility is designed to keep juveniles separate from adult offenders.  

In a statemnet, Unified Government Mayor David Alvey said: "This facility will create an environment that will give a much better chance for young people to learn from their mistakes, alter their behavior, and return to their families and community as responsible and productive citizens."

The new facility is being built downtown KCK behind the current Court Services Building on North Seventh Street.
