Colby College announced yesterday that they'll be building a new $200 million athletic center.

The center will have the first Olympic sized swimming pool in the state.

According to the KJ, it will also have a 200-meter track and a nearly 14,000-square-foot fitness center. The center will be available for use by the community, region and state and will be among the best Division III facilities in the country, according to officials.

Prep work on the facility is expected to start in late Summer or early Fall and it is expected to open in mid-2020
