The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority convention center expansion is on track, according to CEO Steve Hill.
The recent Southern California earthquakes that rattled Las Vegas did not impact the project, according to authority spokeswoman Jackie Dennis.
“If a 7.1 earthquake was here, that answer might be different,” he said. “But the shocks that were received from that earthquake did not damage the expansion.”
The current construction phase — phase two — entails adding 1.4 million square feet to the current convention center and a 600,000-square-foot exhibition hall on space previously used as a parking lot. That work is about 32 percent complete, Hill said at the LVCVA board meeting Tuesday morning. https://www.reviewjournal.com/business/tourism/current-phase-of-las-vegas-convention-center-project-on-track-1707179/
