Webcam gives peek at San Mateo County jail construction

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has set up a live webcam that allows the public to watch construction on the county’s new jail in Redwood City.

The live feed of the jail site at 1300 Maple St. is “an innovative and exciting way to involve the public” in the construction of the $165 million Maple Street Correctional Center, which is expected to open in 2015, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said.

The webcam is also recording the construction, so eventually the Sheriff’s Office will be able to release a time-lapse video of the creation of the 280,000-square-foot jail from start to finish, Rosenblatt said. Work is currently underway on the new jail’s foundation.

The live feed can be accessed by clicking on the link “Construction Webcam” on the sheriff’s website.Bay Area NewsMaple Street Correctional CenterPeninsulaRedwood CitySan Mateo County Sheriff’s Office
