Three companies submit bids for stadium
Mortenson Construction of Minneapolis, Hunt Construction of Arizona and Skanska of New York are angling to build the $975 million stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Bidding ended Monday.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority will interview the three companies later this week. Chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen says the authority will weigh price, experience building sports venues and local participation.
Each of the three companies has built NFL stadiums. Mortenson was the general contractor for Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium, Target Center and the Xcel Energy Center.
The authority and the Vikings plan to pick and announce their construction firm in the first week of February. They hope to have the stadium ready for the 2016 NFL season.
