Officials knew the sprawling entertainment complex would not be completed by the time of the NFL’s championship game, but had been hopeful some type of cosmetic change might be in place. That hope has since been dashed by delays and reality setting in.

Christie adviser Jon F. Hanson said he hoped that Super Bowl ticket holders and others would be buoyed by the “signs of life” with the construction work going on at the site.
