From the outside, the building may look empty. Inside, however, construction workers are building up a sweat.
Construction work is continuing on the Taylor County Detention Center, slated to be completed by end of this month or middle of next.
Taylor County Jailer Rick Benningfield said he's excited about the opening but didn't realize just how much work would be involved.
Benningfield said more painting needs to be done, along with putting in some ceilings and doing other "little" jobs.
"They're really working hard," he said. "I hope by October we'll be in."
