Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon announces that St. Louis-area building trades have committed to a 24-hour construction schedule without overtime to build a stadium during a news conference in St. Louis on Feb. 19, 2015. Based on the agreed schedule of three, eight-hour shifts, five days a week, it is estimated that construction on the proposed riverfront stadium could be completed in two years and would save approximately millions in construction costs when compared to a work schedule of two 10-hour shifts. The redevelopment proposal, announced in January, calls for an open-air, 64,000-seat stadium on a 90-plus acre site on the edge of the Mississippi River for the St. Louis Rams to play their home games.
