Cleveland casino starts elevated walkway project

CLEVELAND (AP) — A new elevated pedestrian walkway will allow gamblers to park and head to Cleveland’s casino without going on city streets.

Work has begun on the walkway sought by the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland to allow gamblers to avoid a busy cross-street and bad weather.

The walkway will open early next year and will have scooter and wheelchair rentals.

Casino general manager Marcus Glover announced the start of the project on Friday. He says it’s a response to guests who want a more convenient route from the casino parking deck.

The glass-enclosed walkway will share the cityscape with a street leading to an imposing granite courthouse decorated with statues of Moses, Thomas Jefferson and others.
