The familiar Cahuilla Casino entranceway, designed like the entrance to a mineshaft, is undergoing a major change that soon will be seen by visitors and motorists along Highway 371 in Anza.

Bruce McClure, Cahuilla Casino general manager, said it will be “awesome” and look much better when completed. He said most of the entrance will be supported by decorated steel pillars, but said he had no artist’s rendering.

The front entrance restructuring is one of many changes taking place in the Indian casino since McClure was hired as it new general manager. Since his arrival earlier in the year, the interior of the casino has new carpeting, newer slots have been installed, the bathrooms have been improved and national and local entertainment is planned, with some groups already playing on a new stage.

Mountain Sky Travel, convenience store and service station has opened.

“We hope the new entrance will be completed in about five weeks,” McClure said. “I think you will like it.”
