Late Entry in Vikings Stadium Sweepstakes

SHAKOPEE (AP) – There’s a late entry into the push for a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.

The City of Shakopee wants to be considered as an option. Mayor Brad Tabke says a 130-acre site between Highways 101 and 169 has existing infrastructure, no need for any environmental cleanup and several routes leading to it.

Shakopee’s proposal comes a day before a Thursday deadline set by Gov. Mark Dayton for Minneapolis and Ramsey County to finalize stadium proposals. The Minnesota Vikings said Tuesday that building a new stadium on the current site of the Metrodome would include $67 million in hidden costs that should be considered.

The Vikings continue to prefer the Ramsey County option – a $1.1 billion stadium on the site of a former Army ammunition plant in Arden Hills.
