Goodell: NFL will contribute toward Vikes stadium
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he’ll reveal details in the next few days about the league’s contribution toward a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.
Goodell met Tuesday morning in St. Paul with Gov. Mark Dayton and the legislators sponsoring a stadium bill.
The Vikings prefer a $1.1 billion stadium in Arden Hills, but there’s dispute over how much it will cost to build roads to the site and who will pay for them. Dayton, Sen. Julie Rosen and Rep. Morrie Lanning all say the state won’t pay any more than $300 million for a stadium project.
Transportation Commissioner Tom Sorel says his agency will have a more exact figure on road costs for the Arden Hills site by Wednesday.
