New Herkimer County Jail Being Constructed


Construction on the new jail in Herkimer County has begun. Following years of debate, the $38 million project is moving forward with construction. The foundation will be the first item on the priority list, then the Gilbane Building Company will move to slab and grades in three sections. The cells will be delivered on June 19th, then the building can be closed up, and will then be ready for interior work. The project is slated for a completion date sometime in June of 2020. Eyewitness News reporter Ben Dennis has the story.
