Work on Redskins Training Camp Could Start Soon

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Construction on the Washington Redskins training camp in Richmond could start as soon as next week.

The Redskins have agreed to hold their summer training camp in Richmond for the next eight years as part of an economic incentive deal struck with the state.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/W8E14V ) that Richmond's city council approved an amended version of the development agreement on Thursday. It guarantees that the city's schools can use the facility.

Construction of the facility is expected to cost up to $10 million. It will be built on state-owned land behind the Science Museum of Virginia.

The facility will include two full-size football fields, a field house with locker and weight rooms, spectator areas and a drill field.
