To attach the wheel’s 28 cabins, the team went through many hours of detailed planning enabling crews to install the final cabin in roughly half the time originally projected. While the High Roller is now structurally complete, the next phase for the construction team includes adding lighting and communications systems, completing the platform structure and testing the various systems of the wheel as well as the removal of temporary construction equipment.

The LINQ will open in phases beginning in late 2013. During the construction phase, The LINQ and High Roller have employed about 3,000 construction workers and will create approximately 1,500 permanent jobs upon opening.
