A groundbreaking ceremony Friday marks the beginning of a consolidation operation for Northampton County government.

Work is now underway on a three-story building that will house the county's entire department of human services.

Right now those operations are spread out among offices in Easton and Bethlehem.

The new place is on Emrick Boulevard in Bethlehem Township.

The move is expected to be complete by March of next year.
