Excavating work is starting on the 22-thousand square foot addition to the jail.

 

Susan Ross is the Property and Facilities Director for Deschutes County.

 

"We got a little bit delayed over issuing our bonds and through design.  These things tend to take longer than expected.  At this point, we're about a month and a half later than we thought we would be, but we're still on target to be done mid summer of 2014."

 

Site work is expected to last for the next six weeks.  By October, construction will get underway.

 

When the remodel is complete, it will add 72 new rooms to the jail with a capacity to house 144 more inmates.
