GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Overcrowding will soon be fixed at one Wabash Valley jail!

Greene County Commissioners say they will break ground on the new jail next Thursday. This is a $16 million project.

Commissioners say they plan to add on to the current jail. This will create 200 more beds at the facility.

Commissioners say they expect to house inmates from nearby counties due to the high demand for jail space.

The jail should be complete by spring of 2019.
