Construction is a bit ahead of schedule for the 2014 completion of the $400 million Horseshoe Casino Baltimore in Maryland. The project stalled last year after a 2009 Federal Emergency Management Agency map showed the property was located in a floodway. The city hired EA Engineering, Science and Technology to do a split-flow analysis, and a revised map was created to support an appeal of the federal decision to bar construction. One of the ways Caesars Entertainment is making sure that flooding won't become an issue is to elevate the casino's interior by four feet, according to Chad Barnhill, general manager of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore.
