KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) -- Supporters of a proposed Kenosha casino say they are moving ahead with their plans while they wait for approval from Gov. Scott Walker.

If approved, officials say they'll open a temporary casino while construction of the new facility is under way.

Some plans for the casino were revealed Friday. The first phase of construction would include more than 400,000 square feet and feature an entertainment venue and retail. It would include 2,700 slot machines, 100 table games and 24 poker games.

The second phase would feature a hotel, spa and pool. The total project is estimated at $810 million.

Walker's administration has commissioned an independent study on the project's economic impact. Walker has until Feb. 19 to approve or deny it.
