CASCADE LOCKS The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs’ controversial casino resort project in Cascade Locks was one of eight off-reservation casino projects in the nation to make it to a final round of public hearings last month. But issues like the casino’s distance from Warms Springs and possible traffic congestion in the Gorge mean the project is far from a sure thing. The tribe’s current casino — 60 miles north of Bend — has 317 video gaming machines, and is the second-smallest of Oregon’s nine tribal casinos. The new project would have as many as 2,000 — about 30% more than the state’s largest casino, Spirit Mountain.
