SOUTH COFFEYVILLE, Okla. (AP) - The Cherokee Nation’s entertainment division has scheduled the start of construction on its newest casino project in Oklahoma.

Groundbreaking is Wednesday for the Cherokee Casino South Coffeyville - located along Highway 169 just south of the Kansas border.

The new 17,000-square-foot property will offer 300 electronic games, a bar and dining at a 50-seat restaurant, among other amenities.

Construction is expected to take six months.

Cherokee Nation Entertainment is the Tahlequah-based tribe’s wholly owned gaming, hospitality, retail and tourism entity.

The company currently operates Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, seven Cherokee Casinos - not including the South Coffeyville location- a horse racing track, three hotels, three golf courses and other retail operations.
