WITTENBERG, Wis. (AP) -- The Ho-Chunk Nation is adding hotels and expanding casinos in Wisconsin.

The tribe begins a $153 million building project next month at its gaming operations in Wittenberg, Black River Falls and Wisconsin Dells.

The project could add 100 jobs to its workforce in Wisconsin where there are 3,400 Ho-Chunk employees.

The Ho-Chunk will build a hotel, restaurant and add about 270 slot machines to its casino in Wittenberg.

In Black River Falls, the tribe will build a new hotel, expand and redesign the casino and add 200 slot machines.

At the Wisconsin Dells casino, the Ho-Chunk will remodel the hotel, redesign the casino area, add a poker room, and an off-track betting area.

The Ho-Chunk didn't announce any immediate plans for its Nekoosa Casino.
