A planned overhaul of an elevated section of Interstate 91 in Springfield is raising questions about access to two proposed downtown casinos in the city and in West Springfield and could emerge as a key issue in the casino competition in Western Massachusetts.
But impact on access to and from these facilities and traffic in the area is clearly a factor.
We have had meetings with MDOT to discuss our project and the I-91 plans and plan to meet with them again soon.
Whatever is planned for 1-91 is not going to occur directly adjacent to our site.
We believe that our North End location is ideal for many reasons, first among them is multiple entrance and exit points for traffic from both I-91 and I-291 to our casino.
The casino developers well know this is going on.
It's a main driveway to all those proposals.
