Amidst ever-changing restrictions on public mobility across the country in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, construction is continuing on the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders.
According to Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, construction on Allegiant Stadium is continuing despite a statewide edict from Governor Steve Sisolak for all hotel and casino property to shudder for 30 days and recommendations for all other nonessential business to temporarily cease as well.
The Raiders need a place to play this fall assuming the football season will still be able to continue as scheduled. Any chance of a return to Oakland for even a temporary stay would seem incredibly minuscule at this point given the frayed relations between the city and team.
Allegiant Stadium is over 85 percent complete in its construction.
