Viking Stadium More Than Half Way Done
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Construction of the Minnesota Vikings new stadium is more than half way done.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Vikings said Monday US Bank Stadium is 65 percent complete and a year away from being finished.
More than 1,200 men and woman are involved in the construction project and so far, $550 million of work has been done on the $1 billion stadium. One of the largest cranes in the world was used on the project, but its work is done and it's being dismantled and shipped in a couple weeks.
The stadium in downtown Minneapolis will be home, not only to the Vikings, but will host a wide range of events, including the Super Bowl in 2018 and the NCAA Men's Final Four in 2019.
