Tioga Downs Puts Final Beam in Place for New Parking Garage
Local dignitaries, Tioga Downs’ personnel and members of the media ceremoniously signed the final steel beam for the new parking garage before it was lifted into place during a press conference at Tioga Downs this morning.
Construction on the 3-story, 275-space garage began last fall as fulfillment of a promise made by Jeff Gural, CEO & Chairman of American Racing & Entertainment (the parent company of Tioga Downs,) to start construction on the ramp if voters passed Proposition 1 in the November 5th election allowing the New York State Legislature to authorize and regulate up to seven casinos in New York. The building process began soon after that proposition was approved.
Construction of the parking garage, which will connect to the casino, is Phase One of Tioga Downs’ expansion plans and is expected to be completed next month.
Tioga Downs Casino is located along the north side of NY Route 17/ I-86,
two miles west of exit 62 in Nichols, NY.
