RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Work kicks off today to build a $14 million dollar aquatics center in Chesterfield.

This is at Ukrop Park, near Route 10 and Chippenham Parkway.

The Times Dispatch reports Chesterfield's Poseidon swimming club bought pools used at the 2008 U.S. Olympic trials for this new facility.

The project should take 10 months to complete.

The indoor center will include three pools for competitions and classes.
