Utah's new prison is complete, and state leaders on Wednesday marked the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a tour. 

The Utah State Correctional Facility sits at the edge of Salt Lake City's boundaries, west of the Salt Lake International Airport, and the campus can house up to 3,600 inmates.

Construction finished more than a year later than planned, and the cost came in significantly higher than the original $550 million approved by the Utah State Legislature in 2015.
