For those nay sayers on “Team Zeenie” who said Don Webb couldn’t catch up, y’all forgot one thing:
THIS IS VEGAS!
After the worst winter weather in Vegas history, Don Webb and his crew at Mortensen/Mccarthy pulled off a summer miracle. They went from being 45 days behind to being at least 2 weeks ahead of schedule. This has to be the biggest construction comeback in NFL history, hands down. Thank you Don for keeping us on schedule.
The stadium is back on track if not ahead of schedule. Great job Don Webb and all the Mortenson/McCarthy Crew!! You all saved Las Vegas!!"
The Raiders Stadium: Back on Track!! This is Vegas!!
By: JediJoy Lightowler
This is Vegas!! The crew was behind, but now they are ahead, because...this is Vegas!!
The crew went to the third shift and now they are flying. They have accomplished so much in the last month. It looks amazing. They are back on course, if not ahead of schedule for the opening date of July 30, 2020.
On Friday, July 19, 2020, they lifted the final two trusses. They lifted them in the same day. We went down to the stadium to check it out. Both the white crane and the red crane were used. I love the cranes. They are so massive and amazing.
The cranes have become quite a staple in Las Vegas over the last couple years. I will be sad to see them go when the project is over. I can watch the cranes all day long. It is so wonderful to see the progress that has been made on this stadium.
If you are a local, I definitely recommend heading down to the stadium before it’s too late. Now is the time to see the progress. They will have the entire exterior complete soon. Once that occurs, it will be tough to see the progress. Now is the time to check out the stadium.
We are so proud of the crew. They have created a gorgeous stadium for the Raiders. This stadium will be a staple for future generations. We all were here to witness the process. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. Even when we were being attacked so hard on social media. It was all worth it.
We have met a ton of amazing people during this stadium update process. We know several of the crew members personally now. We are so happy that we can now report great news!! The stadium is back on track if not ahead of schedule. Great job Don Webb and all the Mortenson/McCarthy Crew!! You all saved Las Vegas!!

Full Earthquake Damage Report coming soon on YouTubeTV.
The dual purpose NCAA/NFL football stadium in Las Begas is where the Oakland Raiders and the UNLV Rebels will host their regular season games.
Last week, Las Vegas felt two major Southern California earthquakes. We went down to the stadium to inspect any visible damage. The safety harness on the roof trusses has come undone. They spent the editors noting reinstalling the safety harnesses.
Any further delays at the stadium will not result in the Raiders missing the opening date. The Raiders can simply add more cranes, more shifts and more crew simply by increasing resort fees.
There are several unfinished ongoing construction projects in Las Vegas. The Drew, Resort World, Circus Circus, the sphere and the Raiders Stadium to name a few.
We recently reported that the stadium trusses were 8 inches out of plumb. In fact, they are actually 1/8 of an inch too long. But that substantial amount of weight makes the trusses unstable.
