BUFFALO, New York — The Seneca Indian Nation is beginning work on a $40 million expansion of its casino in Buffalo.
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown is scheduled to be at the Buffalo Creek Casino on Thursday when Seneca President Maurice John and Gaming Corp. Chairman Barry Snyder mark the start of construction.
The western New York tribe announced plans to add more gambling, restaurant and retail space last summer. The two-story expansion is expected to be completed by spring 2017.
The Buffalo casino is one of three the Seneca Nation operates in western New York. The others are in Niagara Falls and Salamanca. A portion of slot machine revenues goes to the state and host communities.
