The Rivers Casino has made great strides in progress, with the final beam of the parking garage being placed today. The casino's general manager, Ed Fasulo, says the project is on time and on budget to open this August. Construction started in March of last year.
Fasulo says there are 450 construction workers contributing to the project. Many of them are working today, with a blast furnace heating them through the blistering cold weather. Also, over the next month, he says he's expecting all external construction to be finished.
