CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — We now know the location and early design plans for the Carroll County Jail.

As we've previously reported, overcrowding has been a problem at the jail for years. That's because the 36-year-old jail only has 34 beds available.

The new $14 million facility will have 112.

It will be built on county owned land on County Road 100 North. That's just outside of Delphi between Indiana Packers and Carroll Manor.

Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said putting it on county land will save money, and the county may be able to save more once the new jail is up and running.

"Possibly being able to hold other inmates from other counties, which could potentially bring money into our county," said Leazenby.

Leazenby said construction should start sometime in the spring of 2020. It should be finished by late spring or early summer of 2022.
