LOCKPORT, N.Y.-- Plans to build a new YMCA in Lockport took another step forward Friday.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday morning for the facility on Snyder Drive. The 52,000 square foot building will include a full-sized gym, swimming pool, indoor track and a children's 'adventure center'.

The facility will replace the current YMCA on East Avenue.

It's expected to open sometime next fall.
