I received a Denver Post article last week with the latest on Florence. The BOP says that the high security prison will open in February. The administrative Maximum prison (AKA "supermax") will open in the "spring or summer." The only Marion prisoners we expect to be sent to High Security are holdovers, a very small number. Like most Marion prisoners I appear destined for ad. max. The article also noted that the high security prison, originally planned for 550 single bunk cells, has been converted to double bunking and will now hold 1,100 prisoners. As far as I know the ad max will still be single celled.
