A Wisconsin-based steel company is supplying some of the product used for construction of a new N-F-L stadium in Las Vegas.
The Oakland Raiders are scheduled to move there in 2020. Merrill Steel in Schofield is providing and installing the steel for the one-point-nine-billion dollar project. The state-of-the-art facility will hold up to 72-thousand football fans at games played by the Raiders and the University of Nevada Rebels. Merrill Steel leaders say the company has been a key fabricator for several professional sports stadiums in the past.
