MGM Springfield sign goes up as casino prepares for grand opening

Hampden County

MGM Springfield got one step closer to completion.

You’ll now be able to identify MGM Springfield from afar. Crews are working to install an MGM Springfield sign at the corner of Main and Howard Streets.

Crews started installing this sign at 10 p.m. Thursday, and they will continue until 2 a.m. Friday.    

This is actually the second sign that crews installed Thursday night. The first was the hotel sign.

MGM Springfield is now less than four months from opening. MGM Springfield President Mike Mathis told 22News that everything is on schedule for the August 24 opening.

Mathis also told 22News that all parts of the casino will be open for business come August 24.    

MGM is currently in the process of hiring more than 2,000 people to fill open jobs. You can find those jobs posted on MGM’s website.
