Members at the Brentwood YMCA on Concord Road will likely notice changes in the coming weeks as construction work begins to expand and renovated the facility.

Officials with the Brentwood YMCA announced Sept. 28 that construction work is slated to begin in October to renovate the facility.

Beginning Oct. 4 through Oct. 8, basketball courts will be closed, meaning classes held on the basketball courts will also be canceled.

Additionally, the facility's Wellness Floor will be relocated to the courts later this month while that area of the building is demolished and reconstructed. According to a social media post from the YMCA, construction in those areas is slated to last between nine and 12 months.

The organization announced in September 2020 it would eventually close the YMCA location on Maryland Way and merge operations into the expanded location on Concord Road. YMCA officials previously said they intend to keep the Maryland Farms location open until work on the Concord location was complete.
