Tioga Downs' Parking Garage Opens to the Public

Promises Made – Promises Kept...
Tioga Downs' Parking Garage Opens to the Public
Construction started last November

After months of on-schedule construction, the parking garage at Tioga Downs Casino will open to the public on October 31, 2014. A 1pm ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held, when the garage will open to the public. The first 100 visitors to park in the new garage will receive an entry for a chance to win 1 of 3 $500 cash drawings, which will be held after 3pm.

The new garage provides 275 additional parking spaces, and easy access to the casino.

Jeff Gural, CEO & Chairman of American Racing & Entertainment - owner of Tioga Downs, promised a multi-phase expansion project which was unveiled last spring.

Starting with the groundbreaking last November, work continued through the bitter winter months. The foundation was completed in April, the assembly of the garage walls and floors began in early May, and the final beam was hoisted into place during a signing ceremony on September 19th.

According to Gural, "Construction of the garage brought hundreds of jobs to the Southern Tier. Not using a precast system kept these workers employed longer. The project also proves that Tioga Downs is the full gaming license candidate that would be quickest to market with a sustainable and appropriate plan. For this important regional economic development effort, approved by the voters in a referendum, Tioga Downs is the responsible pick. "

The completion of the parking garage marks the end of Phase One of Tioga Downs' Expansion Project. The next phases include an onsite hotel and expanded gaming floor.

Tioga Downs Casino is located along the north side of NY Route 17/ I-86,
two miles west of exit 62 in Nichols, NY.
