Construction continues on Rain Rock Casino in Yreka

Yreka, Calif. — Construction crews are getting ready to begin building the Rain Rock Casino in Yreka.

The ground is still being leveled but that first phase of the project is nearly completed.

Karuk Tribal Council members say nearly 300 jobs are being created.

They say Southern Oregon will also benefit from the casino.

Karuk Tribal Council member Josh Saxon told NBC5 over the phone, “Our economic studies show that some of our clientele will be coming from Southern Oregon so that’s exciting too that we’ll be able to help out the community organization and non-profits up there just like we do down here.”

The casino is expected to open next fall.
