The new $2 billion stadium being built near the Las Vegas Strip for the NFL's Oakland Raiders is not expected to have a roof in place until April but should be finished next summer.
Don Webb, the chief operating officer of a Raiders subsidiary that's building the stadium, said the facility is still expected to be completed by July 31.
Webb told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that work crews are readying the field-level of the venue, including a 9,500-ton 4-foot-tall container that will roll the field into the stadium.
The Raiders plans to start playing at the 65,000-seat indoor stadium just off the Strip in 2020.
