Just east of San Diego off Route 94, construction has started on a new gaming facility. The $360 million casino will be the Hollywood Casino Jamul. It will be owned by and operated by Penn National Gaming.
Penn National Gaming has partnered with the Jamul Indian Village. Penn National will be the operating management company for the casino. However, approval still needs to be given by the National Indian Gaming Commission.
In 1999 a compact for gaming was signed by the state of California and the tribe.
The gaming complex is planned to be 200,000 square feet and three stories tall.
Plans for improving traffic are also being made. New routes for construction vehicles are being developed to help minimize any incontinence to surrounding areas. Also Route 94 is being improved. This will help with the increased traffic by people visiting the casino.
Hollywood Casino Jamul is expected to open 2015
Return to California Casinos.
