MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minneapolis skyline should look like it’s old self once again this week, once crews finish work to re-inflate the torn Metrodome roof.

According to the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, the crews will install the last fiberglass panel and seal the fabric this week.

The roof will then be given a test inflation and, if all goes well, will stay inflated while crews wrap up their work.

The Metrodome collapsed after heavy snowfall last December and has been out of commission ever since. The Vikings had to play using the Gophers’ TCF Bank Stadium as their home turf.

Contractors were given a deadline of Aug. 1 to finish work, but it was still up in the air whether the work would be completed ahead of schedule. The MSFC said there were still a number of projects left to be finished on the $22.7 million project.
