The Plattsburgh Press Republican is reporting this morning that at $75 million expansion is underway at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino in northern Franklin County.
The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe intends to add more than 30,000 square feet of space to the gaming facility for 150 additional slot machines and the Mohawk Bingo Palace operation.
A 150-room hotel will also be built on the site.
Tribal officials, casino representatives and construction managers plan to hold a groundbreaking ceremony at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, to kick off the project, which is designed by Encompass Develop Design Construct out of LaGrange, Ky.
According to the newspaper this will mean approximately forty additional permanent jobs.
