The Eastern Shoshone Tribe of Wyoming broke ground on a $30 million casino expansion project on Tuesday.

The tribe is adding a 61-room hotel, more floor space, an outdoor patio, conference rooms, a swimming pool and a coffee bar to the Shoshone Rose Casino in Lander. The existing building will be converted into meeting and office space.

Construction is expected to take about a year. The project is being financed by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota.

The tribe recently signed a new Class III gaming compact that runs to 2046.
