YMCA Aquatic Center Construction on Schedule

Construction of the new YMCA Aquatic Center is on schedule for an opening in November.

Liz Cassiday, who's executive director of the Y, said work is going surprisingly well in spite of the recent, very cold, weather.

Cassiday expects the joists that go across the entire pool to be installed next week, then progress will be visibly faster, she said.

The pool was originally planned to open in August, but there were delays in availability of concrete and delays in getting steel for the project. But, Cassiday said, local crews have been working hard.

She said the mechanical room for the pool in fact now has a roof. In earlier interviews, Cassiday has said the new pool in the center will have zero entry, a vortex and a slide.
