Groundbreaking Held for Twin River Casino Hotel
A ceremonial groundbreaking was held for a 136-room hotel at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I. on May 2. The $25 million project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2018. Representatives from Twin River Management Group, Excell Construction Corp., A/Z Corporation, and JCJ Architecture were joined by local dignitaries at the event.
The new hotel is designed to be connected to the existing Twin River Casino on the site.
