BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Seneca Indian Nation has resumed construction of a permanent casino in Buffalo after significantly scaling back plans because of the economy.

Seneca leaders ceremonially kicked off construction at the site on Wednesday. The casino will open in the fall of 2013 and replace a smaller, temporary casino that's been operating since 2007.

The Senecas initially envisioned a $333 million casino and hotel complex for Buffalo, but suspended construction in 2008 because of the economic downturn and returned to the drawing board.

The revised plans call for a $130 million, one-story casino with 800 slot machines and 15 table games. No hotel is planned, though it will feature a Buffalo-themed restaurant.

The Senecas operate two other casinos in western New York, in Niagara Falls and Salamanca.
