A multi-lane roundabout along U.S. Highway 2 will serve as the entrance for the Spokane Tribe Casino in Airway Heights. Work will be completed this summer, according to a press release from the Washington Department of Transportation.

The tribe plans to open the $400 million casino before the end of the year.
