Truss Down at Raiders Stadium
They took the truss down because it was not fitting properly in place. It was either an issue with the truss or the roof fixture. This is a big deal, because it takes a lot of manpower and days to fasten these trusses. Then it takes hours to a full day to lift it and secure them in place.
As of Friday morning, the truss was on the ground. The bolts were not fitting right. It was a big deal, because they got it almost set and then had to bring it back down. This causes a lot of people wasted time for the crew.
They are expecting to lift the truss this weekend hopefully Saturday as long as they do not experience any more hiccups along the way. The crew is all about safety. They must have deemed this truss not safe, so they brought it down. This crew goes above and beyond and always make safety paramount.
Let’s hope they stay on course for the opening in 2020. Many more mishaps like this and it could be cutting it too close for comfort.
