"We've got temporary casinos in Columbus, Nebraska, Danville, Virginia, that will hit next year."

- Thomas Reeg, Caesars Ent CEO

"We expect to open temporary casinos in both Danville, Virginia, and Columbus, Nebraska, by mid-year '23."

- Anthony Carano, Caesars President/COO

A day later a Danville oity official confirmed a plan and added some insight.

"The Caesars team told me they were working with the Virginia Lottery to have a temporary casino at the [Schoolfield] site."

- Ken Larking, Danville City

No other information about the plan was mentioned. A formal announcement is expected sometime soon following a greenlight from the Virginia Lottery.

Danville casino delays opening to 2024

May 9, 2022

The late 2023 opening date announced previously by Caesars Entertainment has become unrealistic due to supply chain delays of construction materials and industry-wide labor shortages. In a meeting with the Danville City Council last week, a Caesars spokesman said the revised opening date is now in 2024.

The corporate spokesman, Robert Livingston, said "We have seen supply chain issues and other market forces that continue to wreak havoc." The materials shortages are compounded by labor shortages.

Construction teams are currently removing vast amounts of concrete from the building site.

Caesars Virginia Casino begins construction | Update

October 1, 2021

Construction crews began site preparation work for the Caesars Virginia Casino last week at the former Dan River Inc. factory property. The work puts the construction schedule about two months ahead of plans for the $650 million Danville casino resort. Site work will continue into 2022 in preparation for the casino foundation which will be laid sometime in the first half of 2022.

At the same time demolition crews have also begun work at the site to dismantle and remove the Dan River factory buildings. Demolition and removal will run into second quarter of 2022. The large Dan River finishing building is 617,000 square feet and will be removed near the end of the demolition project. The three smokestacks will be preserved as a feature of the resort.

Construction is expected to last two years with the grand opening of Caesars Virginia Casino planned for late 2023.
