Renovations to Midland County's jail facilities were part of an overall $22-million bond-backed jail expansion to alleviate overcrowding of the existing 201-bed main facility. These projects provided an additional 216 beds to the existing facility. Phase I of the jail expansion consisted of building a 5,800-SF sprung structure to house up to 72 detainees. Phase II included renovations and new construction of approximately 80,000 SF of space for processing and holding detainees. The new facility includes a courtroom, commercial kitchen, laundry and medical facilities, visitation areas, several outdoor secure exercise areas, and three large dormitory spaces.
