I wonder how quickly crews cleanup the mess after an implosion?

    When those hotels come down, man is there a lot of rubble. I always wondered how quickly the crews clean up the rubble. Do you think it's a few days, a few weeks, a few months? I guess it probably depends.

    Here is a time lapse video for the Riviera demolition. There were two implosions of the two largest towers, but the parking deck and other structures that look as if they were demo'd with shears on excavators. I read it cost $42 million and now it's a parking lot for the convention center.

    Pretty much. Labor costs money, so it may be more economical to have less people working on removing the rubble over a longer period of time if it's not too urgent to build something there. Plus, hauling all that rubble offsite in a few days generates lot of traffic, which the city may not allow if it could end up causing traffic jams.

    I'll bet they are no less than 75% illegals.
