The new Vigo county jail took a step towards becoming a reality Tuesday.

County commissioners approved a preliminary design for the jail, this approval comes after a presentation by Garmong Construction and DLZ.

They approved a design for a 494 bed jail that's inside a 131,000 square foot facility.

The design is based on the jail being built on the former International Paper property.

Next month the Terre Haute City Council will vote for a rezoning request by Vigo county.

News 10's Jon Swaner was at today's presentation. he'll have more tonight
