NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – North Charleston officials announce the construction of a new $25 million athletic facility beginning in March.

The groundbreaking is set for March 1 at 10 a.m., located at 1455 Monitor Street.

North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey and members of the city council will be present.
