The hole that has been dug next to the Campbell County Jail is part of a project to expand the jail and courthouse.
The Campbell County Jail currently has 90 beds and houses an average of about 170 inmates, said Captain Eric Jones of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department. The new jail will hold 233 additional beds.
After completing phase one of the project this summer, Merritt Construction begun excavating in preparation to construct the new jail and justice center.
