CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Isle of Capri Casinos will break ground today at the site of their new Cape Girardeau location.

The event is open to the public and scheduled for 2 p.m. at the corner of Main and Mill in Cape Girardeau.

Plans to build the new casino took off December 1, when the Missouri Gaming Commission announced it would give Isle of Capri "preferred developer" status.

Missouri's 13th casino license is expected to be handed over to Isle of Capri when the Cape Girardeau location opens.

The Cape Girardeau casino is expected to open in late 2012.
