Upcoming One Day Pool Closure Expected in Mid-March

Construction at the Long Bridge Aquatics & Fitness Center is progressing rapidly. Construction crews have completed the scaffolding work and started repairs to the pipes in the Phase 1 section (see graphic below). The next portion of the work will apply a protective sealant to the pipes. When the sealant is applied to the pipes this will require a one-day closure, or more, of the 50-meter pool and spa to allow it to dry.  


As you may have experienced with renovation projects, it is difficult to predict exact dates when work will be executed.  We are working closely with the contractor to obtain the most accurate information. We anticipate that the closure of the 50-meter pool and spa will tentatively occur between Wednesday, March 6, and Friday, March 15. The rest of the facility (leisure pool, classrooms, and fitness center) will remain open.


We realize that this window for the closure is broad. Our goal is to keep you informed in advance, enabling you to prepare accordingly. We will notify you of the specific closure date at least 48 to 24 hours in advance. Any resulting program cancellations will be communicated directly to program participants via email.   


Please note that there may be a need for periodic closures like these in the future as we move to the remaining three phases of the 50-meter pool. Our commitment is to keep you updated as these repairs are made. We appreciate your patience as the contractor responsible for maintenance and cost of these repairs works as efficiently as possible.   


Please make sure to stay up to date through these newsletter updates, announcements on the facility webpage, and lane schedule.
