Dustin Walsh of Crain's Detroit Business talks with Craig Fahle about the future of Wayne County's Jail Project. The Project is in the middle of a 60 day moratorium and the county is considering cutting their losses and redeveloping the district where the court and jails are currently located.

The Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, the currently unfinished jail project, the two existing jails and the juvenile jail would be relocated to the Mound Correctional Facility. The correctional facility has been closed since January 2012. The city and county, as well as several prominent business figures have expressed interest in making the area an entertainment district or office area.

How would you like to see the new jail site used? Finish? Start a new entertainment district? Leave it half done as a parkour course?
