BRUNSWICK COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - The Meherrin River Regional Jail Authority breaks ground Thursday on its new regional jail in Brunswick County.

The site is located at the intersection of Boydton Plank Road and Liberty Road.

We hope to learn if and how many new jobs could be added to the Brunswick area.

Last fall the community lost around 400 jobs after budget cuts forced the Brunswick Correctional Center in Lawrenceville to close down.
