Full video from the “Topping Out” Ceremony at the New Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas premiers at 9PM Las Vegas time.
The JediJoyRichShow went to the “Topping Out” Ceremony. They placed the last piece of steel on that day. They had the guys sign the last piece. They had a ceremonious celebration with a piece that had the American Flag, the Nevada State Flag and a Raider Flag. They even put a tree on the top and placed the piece in front of the whole crowd.
It was a fantastic milestone for the crew. The last official piece was installed after the celebration. That’s some of the footage shown in the video. All of the steel is now complete for the stadium. The iron workers should feel immensely proud. This is also the one year mile marker till opening in August 2020! What an accomplishment.
The stadium looks beautiful. Everyone was in good spirits during the celebration. Mark Davis (owner is the Raiders) was there and the Raiderettes and some of the players. We ran into Marc Duntov (Raider1967 on YouTube). It is always great to see Marc. He is the raider update go to guy! It was a really cool event to see everyone enjoying themselves.
They also announced that the stadium will be called the “Allegiant Stadium”. Which is super convenient considering that all the planes ✈️take off right over the new Raiders Stadium. Now Allegiant airline can show all their customers the wonderful new stadium with their name on it.
Video coming at 11pm!
Dignitaries and workers lined up to sign the last beam to be placed on the roof. Even temps were 109 degrees, the morale seemed high as the raised the second to last beam with a tree attached. The tree signifies growth, stability and roots.
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!!
