THE CASS COUNTY JAIL - 28 YEARS LATER. IN: POLYMERS IN CONCRETE: THE FIRST THIRTY YEARS

The Cass County Jail in Fargo, North Dakota, is a cast in place reinforced concrete building built in 1913. Structural restoration of the structure was completed in 1975 using polymer impregnation and epoxy crack injection. The purpose of the project was to repair the building so that it could continue to function as a county jail for another 15 years. This paper reviews the history of the building that has been in service for 28 years since the restoration but is being replaced this year because it is no longer large enough. The original building is still in a serviceable condition and is possibly being preserved as a historic building after the new facility is constructed.
