Downtown Springfield is about to look a little different.
Two new signs welcoming guests to MGM Springfield are getting lifted into place this evening.
Construction got started around 5 p.m. Thursday and us expected to take until roughly 2 a.m. Friday.
These are the first signs for MGM Springfield to go up.
One sign will say 'Hotel' and will light up.
The other will say MGM Springfield and will have the ability to change colors.
A casino spokesperson told Western Mass News that there are an additional sixteen signs going up before opening day.
The huge illuminated sign will be seen clearly seen from Main Street and when we say huge, we mean it. The hotel sign is 22 feet.
Dozens of workers will be getting ready to secure it into place.
This is a sure sign that MGM Springfield is moving closer to their opening day of August 24.
