The overcrowded Pueblo County jail will soon get some much needed space to house inmates.
A new addition will be added to the jail.
Pueblo County Commissioners voted unanimously on Tuesday to approve the seven-million project.
More than 300 new best will be added to the facility. Right now, more than five-hundred inmates are housed there, and the facility only has 200 beds.
The county plas to break ground on the project within a few weeks, and construction should be done by April of 2006.
