HERKIMER, N.Y. -- The first round of jail cells have arrived at the site of the new Herkimer County Jail.

The concrete cells were prefabricated in a factory in Pennsylvania.

A total of 128 jail cells total will be installed in three sections at the site on Route 28 in Herkimer.

Before the arrival of the cells, construction crews were prepping the area and working on the administration building.

Herkimer County officials will address the milestone next week, and give WKTV an update on the project.
