The Reston Associations expects a multimillion-dollar project to renovate the Lake Thoreau pool, closed since last year, will be done by the 2023 swim season.

The organization’s Design Review Board approved the $3.5 million project in July, and RA finalized a contract with Maryland-based Hubert Construction.

RA suggested that it held a meeting on Monday (Dec. 13) about the logistics and scheduling, but a spokesperson for the organization declined to provide details, saying when information is available, it would be released to members through RA communication channels.

The association’s board of directors is slated to hear an update on the project at its regular meeting Thursday (Dec. 16).

According to the presentation, there are ongoing adjustments to 20% of the design, which includes expanding the footprint of a pool house. The project also calls for reconstructing the pool, expanding the bathhouses as well as a parking lot, and more.

The pool first opened in 1981 but has had structural problems, such as cracks in the pool shell and concrete deck.

RA had sought to begin construction in October or November. The association declined to comment on why the timeline was delayed.
