Though it sometimes seems officials have nothing but good news regarding the construction of the Las Vegas stadium, one official acknowledged a list of worries tied to the $1.8 billion project that occasionally keep him up at night.
The Raiders team is in the final stretch of completing a comprehensive transportation plan that will increase parking significantly, Stadium Event Co. Chief Operating Officer Don Webb said.
Nearly half of the $1.8 billion has been spent and construction on the Las Vegas stadium is about 44 percent completed with 11 of 26 canopy trusses in place.
Hotels across the Las Vegas Valley are raising their rates during the 2020 NFL Draft, which is expected to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Strip.
Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air said the trademark request is not tied to the $1.8 billion Raiders’ Las Vegas stadium to be completed in 2020.
