CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Officials are moving forward with a $30 million expansion to the Shoshone Rose Casino near Lander in an effort to draw in more out-of-town visitors.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1FpvSWJ ) a groundbreaking ceremony was held last week for the new casino, which will feature a 61-room hotel and larger gaming area. An additional cafe and outdoor dining will also be included.

The expansion project, which was approved last December, is expected to be finished by late summer or early fall of 2016.

General Manager Robert Pokorney expects the project to have a big economic impact on Fremont County. He says three local contractors are working on the site, and 50 new positions will be added to the casino.
