There has been a lot of talk going back and forth about the completion date for the Raiders Stadium. The original date was supposed to be in June 2020. Now for awhile, the Raiders and Mortenson/McCarthy were saying July 31, 2020. Now the completion date has been moved to August 4, 2020. This is two days before the pre-season game. So it is going to be a super tight schedule.
After we mentioned that the stadium was going to be delayed. People were in an uproar. We could clearly see that the stadium construction had been set back with the weather. There are several tresses that where supposed to be lifted last week. We went all week to check if they were lifted. They still are not up. There has been a huge crew working hard to get caught up. Everyone is moving faster than they were in the beginning of the project.
We mentioned a delay last week. They sent an inspector this week, the stadium is delayed. They are off of their original projections. They now are having to consider if it’s time to go to a third shift or if they will be able to complete it with the current crew for the new completion date of August 4, 2020. We are all looking forward to the finish and super excited to have the Raiders in Las Vegas.
