WESTPORT - Trucks arrived yesterday to pour the cement foundation of the new YMCA facility in Westport and officials say the center may be completed sooner than expected.

The center's CEO says the new facility will include two swimming pools, a wellness center, two gyms, a child watch program, a family play area, and new locker rooms.

The new YMCA is scheduled to open in September 2014, but with plans ahead of schedule, officials say it may be done earlier.
