Casino Project Changes - Thursday 4th of May 2006

ROCK ISLAND, Illinois As reported by WHBF: "The relocation project of Jumer's Casino Rock Island got some adjustments today. Jumer's president Ron Wicks says construction on the new casino and hotel (where Highway 92 and Interstate 280 meet) will be done simultaneously.

"'The market conditions allow us to do it,' Wicks says, 'the banking community says it's the right thing to do. We've always wanted to do this from up-front, but we didn't know if we had the resources to get it done. Obviously, we believe we do today, and that's why we're moving ahead.'

"Officials expect to break ground this summer, and work to be finished by late 2007 or early 2008. They also expect the new development to bring about 300 jobs to the area..."
