VERONA, N.Y. (AP) – The Oneida Nation is set to announce an expansion at its casino in upstate New York.

The Oneida Nation has started work on a new $25 million entertainment complex at its casino.
Tribe officials say the project at the Turning Stone Resort Casino will be the first major construction at the resort since work began on the Turning Stone Tower and The Lodge in 2004.
They say the complex called “Exit 33″ will include a country music dance hall, rock and roll club, lounge and piano bar.
It's expected to employ about 100 people when it opens in July.
