Caesars Entertainment Corp. executives say they plan to open a $550 million outdoor promenade in June 2013, linking its casinos on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip with restaurants, bars and a 550-foot observation wheel.

Caesars spokeswoman Jan Jones told reporters Wednesday that the link project will employ 3,000 construction workers and cater to a set of tourists that will make up more than half the market in four years.

The centerpiece of the project is a soaring wheel - taller than the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer - with spherical cabins that can hold 40 people each and take 30 minutes to make one revolution.

Officials say the project will call for the existing O'Sheas casino on the Strip to be closed and moved.
