The Quinault Nation of Washington will start work on a $25 million casino expansion project in March.

The Quinault Beach Resort and Casino will grow to accommodate additional slot machines, a more food options, two bars and a coffee shop/gift shop. The project also includes a 500-car, four-story parking garage that will double as a tsunami shelter for the region.

"The Quinault Beach Resort & Casino has been a major component of Quinault Nation’s employment and economic structure for the past 16 years. It is largely due to its success that we have been able to diversify," President Fawn Sharp said in a press release. "We have been proud to provide such a comfortable and rewarding entertainment facility to area residents and visitors alike at this beautiful location, surrounded by the majestic Pacific Ocean and hundreds of acres of protected wetlands and glorious forests. We have been proud to provide employment for so many families, economic support for the region and millions of dollars in support for such necessities as emergency services for nearby communities."

Construction will employ more than 100 people, according to the tribe, and more jobs will be added at the casino once the project is complete.
