Main casino blasting to end Aug. 4

Small blasts for utilities foreseen in future

EastBayRI.com ·

TIVERTON — Blasting at the site of the Twin River Tiverton Casino-Hotel is set to end by next weekend, Friday, August 4th.

This is as anticipated, said Andy Dufore, North Division Manager of Maine Drilling & Blasting, the company that is managing the blasting for Twin River.

In announcing the approaching end of the blasting, Mr. Dufore said his project team has adhered to the schedule it communicated to the community, but noted the possibility "of small blasts for underground utility work at some point in the future."

“We began the blasting phase of construction in July with the promise that we would conclude by August 4, and we are on track to meet that commitment,” said Mr. Dufore.

“In fact, we are substantially complete already. For the final push, we will continue with the notification system we have in place for surrounding owners within a 1,000 foot radius. Last, any future minor blast work for utilities will follow the same protocol."

“We want to thank nearby property owners for putting up with what is undoubtedly one of the noisier phases of construction,” said Mike Barlow, Vice President of Property Operations for Twin River Management Group. “We understand noise intrusions are never welcome, and for that reason, did our best to condense this noisy portion of construction in as tight a timeframe as we possibly could.”
