CINCINNATI (AP) - A project spokeswoman says crews were upbeat as work resumed at the Cincinnati casino site where more than a dozen workers were hurt.

Jennifer Kulczycki (kuhl-ZIH'-kee) with Rock Gaming says about 100 people went back to work on Wednesday, five days after a floor collapsed as concrete was being poured.

The injuries from Friday's accident were mostly minor. Kulczycki says the returning workers were briefed on those who were hurt and were relieved to hear they're making steady progress.

She says another 100 workers are not back on the job because the area where the collapse occurred is still restricted.

The president of Messer Construction Co. says construction, safety and inspection procedures have been reviewed and new ones have been added at the Horseshoe Casino project.
