HERKIMER – Construction on the new Herkimer County Jail continues, and those overseeing the project are tracking milestones as the project progresses.
"Now, probably the biggest milestone is closing up the building. You can see a lot of walls have gone up; the roof is going on. It now looks like a building," said Sheri Ferdula, budget officer for the City of Herkimer.
As winter approaches, most of the remaining construction will happen inside the new structure.
“From this point on, a lot of the work will be inside, so it won't look like too much is going on, but the inside will be very busy,” Ferdula said.
The new facility is located on Route 28 in Herkimer. It is expected to be completed by June 2020.
