Missouri Governor Jay Nixon announces that St. Louis-area building trades have committed to a 24-hour construction schedule without overtime to build stadium, during a press conference in St. Louis on February 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 $40 million in construction costs when compared to a work schedule of two ten-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. Standing with Nixon is St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay (L) and St. Louis-area labor leaders. Photo by Bill Greenblatt/UPI
