STARKE COUNTY Construction has officially begun for the new Starke County Jail.

A building located at the intersection of State Road 8 and County Road 550 E in Knox will house the jail, but there's a lot of work to be done at the 24-acre property.

According to WSJM, the facility will have 146 beds, compared to 63 in the previous.

The sheriff's department should be ready to go by May next year, and the rest of the project will be done by April 2015.
