Ocean Downs, under the gun (access required)

The casino at Ocean Downs is four months away from its planned opening date and it looks like the construction crews may need every bit of it. They were hard at it this morning -- laying brick in the front, putting large steel beams in place on the roof and doing other work inside the structure. I took a spin out to the track Thursday morning to check in on the progress being made there. At first glance (especially for an untrained eye like mine) it's hard to believe that what is going on there is a renovation, rather than construction from the ground up.
