    Aquinnah Wampanoags Tribe: Martha's Vineyard Gambling Hall Construction to Begin
    FILE: Martha's Vineyard

    A Massachusetts tribe says construction is expected to begin next month for a gambling hall on the resort island of Martha's Vineyard.

    The Aquinnah Wampanoags tribe says Williams Building Company of Hyannis has been chosen as general contractor for the project.

    The 10,000-square-foot facility that's planned to have about 250 electronic gaming machines is being built on tribal trust lands. The tribe says the gambling hall will employ almost 100 full-and-part time employees when operating.

    Site preparation began this month. The tribe says construction is expected to take about six months to complete.
