The Empress casino in Joliet is poised to reopen Thursday after a long shutdown because of fire damage.
"Everything is coming along great," Empress marketing coordinator Kevin McMaster said. "It's amazing how fast things are coming together.
"We are crossing our last Ts and dotting our last Is for Thursday."
The grand reopening is to kick off with a flag-raising ceremony conducted by the Joliet Police Department, followed by a ribbon-cutting at the casino turnstile entrance.
