ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — Caesars Entertainment is moving ahead with expansion plans at its second horse track casino in central Indiana that will add space for more slot machines and a new restaurant.

An Anderson zoning board has approved the estimated $34 million project for Harrah’s Hoosier Park.

The company plans adding 100 more slot machines, along with restaurant and bar space and a new drive-through area for valet parking.

Groundbreaking is expected next April, with construction expected to take 13 to 15 months.

Caesars is in the midst of a $32 million gambling floor expansion at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino near Shelbyville that’s set for completion later this year.
