KESHENA, Wis. (AP) -- As the Menominee Indian tribe waits word on its plan to build an $800 million casino in Kenosha, it's moving ahead with plans to renovate its gaming facility in Keshena.

The Menominee broke ground Monday, kicking off an $8 million renovation project. Table and poker gaming areas will be centralized. Old slot machines will be replaced and the bar and lounge will be expanded. A better ventilation system will more efficiently remove tobacco smoke.

WLUK-TV says the renovation project should be completed by this fall.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs has extended the deadline for Gov. Scott Walker to make a decision on the tribe's Kenosha plans until February.
