In November 2016 the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community announced plans to expand their Ojibwa Casino in Marquette. The plans included doubling the casino space, 500 additional slot machines, two restaurants, event and conference centers and a hotel.
After some delays and rising construction costs, the expansion project was divided into two phases. Construction of the hotel was moved into the second phase.
The ground-breaking for the first phase was celebrated in August 2018 with an expected completion date in early 2020.
The completion date for the hotel construction phase has not been announced and remains in the planning stage.

The $40 million construction project at the Marquette Ojibwa Casino is expected to open to the public this December. This project is a total renovation and expansion of the casino that began in August last year and was scheduled for completion in early 2020.
In a statement from the casino's general manager, the opening date has been moved up to December. General Manager Larry Denomie said:
"The project is moving along very well and we are actually slated to open most of the new facility in December of this year. The only item that will open a bit later is the new restaurant that will feature menu items developed by Dave Anderson, founder of Famous Dave's BBQ."
The expansion of the casino includes a doubling of the gaming floor and the addition of 500 slot machines. There will also be two new restaurants, a 1,200-seat amphitheater for live entertainment and a 400-seat convention center.
A 100-room hotel will be built in the next phase of construction, however, the start and finish dates have not been announced.
