Ameristar: Casino project on schedule
Officials of Ameristar Casino say construction of a $500 million casino is moving ahead on schedule and the development should open in 2014.
The American Press reports that since July, Ameristar has removed trees, set a building foundation and completed a road that allows construction workers access to the site of its casino hotel in south Lake Charles.
Ameristar Vice President Jack Mohn said the new casino's neighbor — Pinnacle Entertainment, owner of L'Auberge Casino Resort — has been accommodating.
He said Pinnacle has allowed construction materials to be transported through its property to the construction site.
