Truss Taken Down on June 16th
CLUE: The fact that the RJ did not even mention that there was a truss issue, was an issue.
Everyone was aware that a truss had been put up and then put back down. Interestingly enough, the RJ has never addressed this at all. They have only said that the stadium is 100% on time NO IFS ANDS OR BUTTHOLES about it.
Why was that?
Las Vegas, NV: The crew was in such a RUSH after the snow storms in February, that they didn't notice the pieces were going on upside in March and April. So they brought in a third crane to speed up the truss lifting. However that came to a screeching halt when they realized the trusses were not stable in May when a truss did not fit. The big white crane could not be used for over 6 weeks because they were using it hold up the truss. The crane cost $500,000 a moth to rent. They brought in a third crane. The delivery cost of the Barnhart crane was $1 million.

Raiders Stadium Las Vegas Update: Truss Taken Down!
The roof truss that was put in place in May had to be taken down in June.

Truss Fuss Continues as Inspectors Cannot Guarantee that the First Two Trusses Mounted are Structurally Sound
Think about it logically.
1)They had to bring one truss down because it was not structurally sound when it was mounted on May 15th. And 2) they built ALL the trusses in ADANCE before they
knew they wouldn't fit.
The question you should be asking is, "How many trusses were built the same way as the one installed on May 15th?"
Next CLUE: Who bought all the CONSTRUCTION BONDS last April?
See ya' tomorrow!
Rick Velotta and Mick Ackers from the Las Vegas Review Journal made a huge stink about not being late back in March on Twitter when in fact they were lying.
The funny thing about a camera. If you take a photo of a crowd, it’s always the one who runs up asks “why are you taking my photo?” who’s doing a crime. That’s how we figured this out.
There are crimes that were committed and/or orchestrated by Sheldon Adelson and Mick Ackers in order to keep Bank of America in the dark about the trusses that were built upside down at the Raiders Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. And here is the evidence that proves that they are lying to the Bank of America.
Mick Ackers admitted that he uses @RAIDERStoVEGAS as his fake “sock puppet account. This was the key to their suppression of information to the public. When JediJoy would post news about the trusses, Mick Ackers would switch to his other account called “go knights go” @RaidersToVegas on Twitter. He would use this account to target anyone who said the stadium was late: JediJoy. He has a lot of sports followers so he convinced them to also bash JediJoy when she was protecting the stadium. You can verify all of this with the FBI. We reported his targeted harassment to the FBI on June 23, 2019.
To Mick Ackers or anyone else involved in this scandal:
It’s time for you to come clean. Otherwise, it will just get worse for you like you cannot imagine. I can be reached at (702) 465-9885 on WhatsApp for a secure, encrypted conversation about what’s really going on in Las Vegas.
Truss at Las Vegas Stadium Came Back Down after 6 weeks
LAS V EGAS, NV: The Raiders Stadium experienced some hiccups the last month. We had not been visiting the stadium as often, so we missed the fact that they have not lifted a truss in over a month. In fact the crew had to take down a truss. This caused a huge month long delay over this truss situation. They were trying to figure out how to get it secured without having to remove it.
That did not happen, so unfortunately on Thursday, June 13th, they had to take the truss back down to fix it on the ground. They had experienced some issues with fastening this truss to the roof. There are so many working parts, pieces and crews doing different pieces of the project. So every group has to be considered when making decisions. A lot of the projects rely on one part to be done for the next to proceed and so forth. There was a lot of meetings to make sure they made the best decision for the entire crew.
This setback may require a third shift. From what I have heard they are about to have more people on the night shift. I am not sure if there will be more people added when they change the shifts or if the timing is just changing. I’m getting the impression they might have to up the hours to get this done in 410 days. That is the official counter as of 8 am today June 16th. They are getting a little to close to comfort.
Today they were able to lift the truss that was brought back down. They for now have come up with a solution for the truss. Let’s keep our fingers crossed this one holds. If so, then they have three more trusses that are ready to be lifted this week. They also have started bringing in the glass for the exterior. Once the trusses are up, they can really start flying on the glass for the exterior of the stadium. We will keep everyone posted on updates as we hear and see them. Keep checking back for more updates.
The Raiders Stadium exterior is so close to being complete. They have enclosed the backside of the stadium with steel. It’s now hard to see into the stadium from the road. The crew have been cruising along the last month with this fantastic weather. They will have to start to adjust the schedules, now that we are heading into the hottest time of year.
Currently there are about 1400 crew members on the day shift. There are about 125 on the night shift. The end of June and beginning of July are the hottest times in Las Vegas. They are going to start shifting some of the day crew to night crew since the temperature gets up to around 120 degrees in Vegas.
It’s super important this time of year for the crew to stay cool. It is much easier to work in the early hours here. Once you hit noon it’s a scorcher out there. Mortenson/McCarthy have set up cooling stations for the crew to decompress. If they get too hot they can go cool off in the cooled down tent. They also make sure the crew stays hydrated.
If people are not from Vegas and even if you are from Vegas, that summer heat can catch you off guard. We are starting to have trouble walking around because it’s getting so hot. I am super happy to hear that part of the crew will move to the night shift. This is one professional crew out there. They have the cleanest work site I’ve ever seen.
We are getting excited for the Raiders coming in 2020. It appears that they have caught up and are on course if not early for the open date. It’s quite a beautiful site to see. I cannot wait till it is filled with over 60,000 fans and players. I know Oakland will miss the Raiders, but we are sure happy to Welcome them to Las Vegas!
