Ground Breaking Officially Kicks Off Construction Of Crossings Ice Complex

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - A line-up of government officials put shovels into the dirt this morning, for the official ground breaking of the $41-million Crossings Ice complex on the west side.

 

The facility will include two NHL sized ice surfaces and a 10 sheet curling rink.

 

Funding for the project is split between three levels of government. $25.8 million dollars is coming from the province, $10 million from the federal government, while the City of Lethbridge put up close to $5.5 million for the project.

 

Manager of Recreation and Culture Ashley Matthews points out it's the first phase of a leisure centre, which will include an aquatics centre down the road. Matthews says "it becomes the hub of our community as far as activities and not just about sport, it's about wellness. I think it's really going to help the community grow, it's going to attract people to our community becasue it is something that many other communities have and Lethbridge doesn't at this time."

 

Construction is expected to begin in October. It will take about two years to build, with the facility opening late in 2015 or early 2016.
