The $20 million expansion of Northern Quest Resort Casino, on the West Plains, is scheduled to be completed in phases this spring and summer.

The Kalispel Development Co., the development arm of the Kalispel Tribal Economic Authority, has projects approaching $30 million in value in the works at its Northern Quest Resort & Casino, on the West Plains.

Brandon Haugen, general manger of Kalispel Development, says the nearly $20 million, 55,000-square-foot expansion on the south side of the casino is well underway and will be opened in phases starting in late May and going through midsummer.

The expansion will house a Cyber Quest arcade, a Kids Quest attraction, a movie-and-dinner theater complex, and a retail store to be called Windfall.

Lydig Construction Inc., of Spokane Valley, is the general contractor for the expansion, with Spokane-based Garco Construction Inc. handling work on the movie-and-dinner complex. ALSC Architects PS, of Spokane, designed the expansion.

The Kalispels also are developing a $7 million recreational-vehicle park on 17 acres of land south of the casino and west of a Chevron gas station. Haugen says the RV park will include 70 RV stalls, 18 cottages, a clubhouse, two wash houses, and a dog park. It’s scheduled to open midsummer.

Garco is the contractor on that project, and Spokane-based Womer & Associates designed it.

Kalispel Tribal Economic Authority announced its plans for the casino expansion and RV park in February 2017. Since then, the organization also has started work on a $1 million-plus renovation of its Impulse lounge, a $1 million-plus makeover of its 10th floor hotel rooms, and a $1 million-plus seating expansion at its oudoor concert venue.
