SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) - Builders of a riverside casino in Schenectady say they will keep an aggressive construction schedule as they plan for a 2017 opening.

Developers of the Rivers Casino & Resort held a ceremonial groundbreaking on Wednesday along with local officials. The casino operated by Rush Street Gaming will have 1,150 slot machines, 63 gaming tables and a 163-room hotel.

Rivers was one of three casino granted licenses by the state in December. The other casinos are being built in the Catskills and the Finger Lakes.
