TIVERTON (AP) — The road that the leads to a new casino being built in Rhode Island is being given a name that will make it easier to find.
Tiverton’s planning board granted a request from the Twin River-Tiverton casino to reclassify the driveway into the project as a private road called Tiverton Casino Boulevard, The Newport Daily News reported.
Casino attorney Mark Russo said the name will make it easier to find the place and allow the owners to install road signs directing people to it. The vote was 6-0 with one board member abstaining.
The project with 1,000 slot machines, 32 table games and an 84-room hotel is just a few hundred feet from the Massachusetts border. It is scheduled to open Oct. 1.
