Full statement from Rock Gaming on casino collapse

Posted: Updated:

A full investigation by Rock Ohio Caesars Construction Team, OHSA , City building inspectors, and the Cincinnati Fire Department is now underway to determine the cause of this morning's collapse of a 60'x 60' bay within the casino facility.   

We are thankful to report that there were no life-threatening injuries to any workers who were in the area at the time of the incident. On behalf of the entire ownership and casino construction team, we wish those workers a quick recovery. 

We would also like to thank Cincinnati's firefighters, police and first-responders who provided on-site medical care, quickly transported workers to area hospitals and secured the site. 

At this time the worksite is closed, and work will not resume until the construction team and OSHA determine that it is safe to do so. 

On Friday, January 27 at approximately 7:45 a.m. a single bay of the facility collapsed as concrete was being poured. The casino is located at the former Broadway Commons site at Reading Road, Broadway and Court Streets.
