With 15% Complete, Las Vegas Stadium On Track

Site excavation completion bolsters outlook on the tight 30-month schedule

The joint venture of Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Building Cos. is 15% done with construction on the $1.8 billion Las Vegas stadium, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. This will be the future home for the NFL's Oakland Raiders when the franchise moves for the 2020 season.

Team officials said excavating approximately 1 million cubic yards has been completed without any "surprises". The stadium's upper levels are due by the end of July, when crews are scheduled to start vertical construction with prefabricated steel.

The Raiders have not released details on season ticket sales and did not comment rumors that premium seating, including club seats and luxury boxes, are almost sold out. Personal seat licenses, or PSLs, went on sale July 17 in reserved-seating areas for season-ticket holders and fans with appointments. PSLs will range from $3,900 to $15,000 per seat.
