Construction for the Downs of Albuquerque has encountered a problem that will delay the progression.

An issue with the soil was discovered. Engineers have reported that areas of land where the casino is being built are not compacted to meet the standard. Due to this, it is expected that casino will now open a month later than planned.

The new 65,000 square foot casino has also caused an issue for the New Mexico State Fair. The construction has taken over 300 of the available parking spaces. Fair goers will have less parking available. The fair runs from September 12 to the 23.

In January of this year, a 25 year long lease was approved to the Downs of Albuquerque. This approval came from the State Fair Commission and allowed for the casino to be built on the fairground property.
