MIDLAND - More room to house more Midland County inmates.

The jail broke ground on Thursday on the first phase of its expansion.

It'll take about four months to complete this phase, adding more than 70 beds to the jail.

The entire project will probably take about two-and-a-half years.

A 22-million-dollar bond, passed in November, is funding the much-needed expansion.
