Raiders File Height-Requirement Review For New Stadium

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed Wednesday that the Oakland Raiders have filed a height-requirement review for the team’s new stadium that will spring onto Russell Road just west of Interstate 15.

The stadium site is very close to McCarran International Airport, so the FAA will examine potential problems related to height, lighting and post-game fireworks at the stadium.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports there is not a set timeline to complete such reviews, but the Raiders have signaled they hope to start construction by the end of the year, with plans to open in time for the 2020 NFL season.
