CARSON, Los Angeles County (CBS) — The proposed $1.7 billion Chargers-Raiders stadium in Carson would be built on top of a half-century-old landfill and close to Interstate 405, two things that have made some residents uneasy with the idea.

Longtime Carson resident Ruby Spencer told Jeff Nguyen of KCBS-TV Los Angeles that she hasn’t made up her mind about the prospect of an NFL stadium being built at the site.

“It would bring additional revenue of course along with that comes the addition of traffic,” Spencer said.

But Carson Mayor Jim Dear said he doesn’t think traffic would be an issue because professional football is mostly played on Sundays when, he said, traffic isn’t as dense as it is during the workweek. He said the $1.7 billion plan will include road fixes.
