OXON HILL, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan helped celebrate a milestone with the MGM National Harbor resort and casino.

The governor spoke during the MGM Resorts International’s 1,000th member construction workforce celebration on Wednesday.

The $1.2 billion project was projected last year to bring about 2,000 construction jobs and 4,000 permanent jobs.

The plans for the site include a casino that can hold 3,600 slot machines and 160 table games. Officials said it could open as early as summer of 2016.

Along with the casino MGM plans on a 27,000 square-foot meeting and event space, a parking structure for 4,800 cars and a theater with 3,000.
