More of the Riviera has come down.

The parking garage has been brought down and crews are working to clean debris out of some of the rooms.

The Riviera tower itself is going to be demolished in two separate implosions -- the first in June, the second in August.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority bought the property in 2015 for $191 million to build a new convention center.

In all, it will cost $42 million to demolish the casino.
