KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Tuesday you have a chance to check out the new and improved Kalamazoo County Jail.
Officials are celebrating the completion of a $23-million expansion with a ribbon cutting and open house.
It's from 1:00 to 3:00 at the jail on Lamont Street.
The addition will allow the jail to house around 500 inmates, which will ease overcrowding.
While the majority of the work is complete, the expansion will be opened in phases because construction still hasn't started on the visitation area.
That building is expected to be up and running by October.
