WILLIAMSON COUNTY - Following years of planning and preparation, The Resort at Walker's Bluff may pass one of its final hurdles this week before construction can begin.

The Illinois Gaming Board is set to vote on whether or not to approve a gaming license for the multi-million dollar project on Thursday.

Earlier this year, it was announced the project may be completed in one single phase. The Illinois Gaming Board passed a determination of preliminary suitability for the project in June.

Construction is anticipated to commence immediately following the approval by the Illinois Gaming Board.

The complex would bring a new restaurant, hotel, casino, and more to the Walker's Bluff property. Stay with WFCN News for updates on this story throughout the week.
