A $40 million expansion is planned for two casinos owned by the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) of the Lake Superior Band of Chippewa Indians.
Construction has already started on the Marquette Ojibwa Casino. It will receive a $33 million renovation and is expected to be completed by September of next year.
When completed the casino will operate double the amount of games. New dining venues will be added. Also a hotel with 76 guest rooms will be built. Plus a concert venue with 1,200 seats and a convention center that can host 400 people.
The Baraga Ojibwa casino will also be undergoing renovations. The construction is estimated to be finished by March of next year.
One of the biggest changes will be made to the infrastructure on the property. New units for cooling and heating will be added. New smoke eaters will also be added.
The KBIC approved the renovation projects last year by vote in August.
