The Oakland Raiders will put the first shovels in the ground today on their $1.9 billion stadium project near the Strip, the next major step in the franchise’s long process of moving to Las Vegas.

Seven months after receiving approval from NFL owners to relocate from California to Nevada, Raiders owner Mark Davis, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and local leaders will officially start the 31-month construction clock in an evening ceremony at the Russell Road stadium site.
