Construction bids are due for companies angling to build
the new Minnesota Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
The deadline to submit bids is Monday.
At least six firms have expressed interest in building the $975 million
stadium, including three Minnesota companies: Mortenson Construction and
Kraus-Anderson of Minneapolis, and Loeffler Construction of Lakeville.
The three other firms are Gilbane Building Companies of Rhode Island,
Skanska of New Jersey and Hunt Construction of Arizona.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority will pick and announce a
construction company in early February. The stadium architect will be
Dallas-based HKS Inc., which previously designed NFL stadiums for the Dallas
Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts.
Team officials and the sports authority hope to have the stadium ready for
the 2016 Vikings season.
