Arlington Heights Park District officials broke ground Tuesday on a two-story, 53,975-square-foot addition to the Olympic Indoor Swim Center, expected to be complete at the beginning of 2020.

The facility at 660 N. Ridge Ave. will remain open initially as construction crews begin site work on the surrounding grounds and new building, which will include a gymnasium with two full-sized basketball courts, a second-floor indoor walking track, a 30-by-50-foot warm water pool, a fitness area and multipurpose rooms.

The center is expected to close in March 2019 at the end of swim team season until the completion of the project. That will mean temporary relocation of some swim activities to other pools.

Of the $16.9 million being spent — a mixture of borrowing via bond issues, property taxes and reserves — about $1 million is for maintenance of the existing building, including fixing a pool drain, replacing the boiler and installing a new dehumidification system. The soccer field will remain open during construction, expected to occur weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
