ONN – Las Vegas Stadium Not Finished Until December 2020 So NFL Raiders, UNLV Football, Garth Brooks Take Risk Using Building
The report says it all from the very files of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority:
The project schedule was generally unchanged during the current reporting period. Substantial completion is anticipated on July 31, 2020. Project closeout was extended from October 31, 2020, to November 31, 2020, in Februaryand was unchanged in June. Respecting the uncertainty inherent to the COVID-19 crisis, the stadium’s opening event, Garth Brooks, remains scheduled for August 22, 2020. The opening preseason game between the Las Vegas Raidersand the Arizona Cardinals is scheduled for August 27, 2020, UNLV’s first home game is scheduled for August 29, 2020and the first official NFL game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the New Orleans Saints is scheduled for September 21, 2020.
We have noted that the project’s “tail,” or the work that will be required after substantial completion, has increased.Roughly $144.6 million in project costs are currently anticipated to be incurred after the project reaches substantial completion (i.e., between August 2020 and December 2020). This work now stands at 7.3 percent of the overall project budget.
Now if the Allegiant Stadium will not be ready until December, why even bother to use it with $144 million in construction to be done and the Las Vegas Stadium Authority not telling anyone?
That is dangerous. Pure and simple. Almost 10 percent of the stadium not finished and they want to use it? That is crazy.
Note from zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
