Three activists have dropped a lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis over its plans for a park linked to a $400 million development project near the new Vikings stadium.
Parties to a lawsuit over the Minnesota Vikings stadium project are under orders to submit arguments to the state Supreme Court. People trying to halt a state bond sale hope the high court will intervene.
A state agency that was to sell bonds for the Minnesota Vikings stadium says a lawsuit holding up that $468 million offering is flawed. Department of Minnesota Management and Budget lawyers pressed the state Supreme Court on Tuesday to dismiss the case.
When one stadium goes up, another one must come down. That’s what happening right now in downtown Minneapolis. On Saturday, the Metrodome will go flat. It’s a speedy demolition process to make way for the new billion dollar Vikings stadium. Crews broke ground more than a month ago and the time has come to clear out the building for the next phase.
The public authority overseeing Vikings stadium construction is asking the Minnesota Supreme Court to make plaintiffs who sued to stop the project post a $50 million bond to show they could cover damages if they lose.

If you want to take in a Minnesota Vikings game at TCF Bank Stadium next year and you’re not a season-ticket holder, they’re going to be hard to come by. Vikings team officials said Friday they’ve currently slotted every seat at the stadium on the University of Minnesota campus for fans with season tickets.
The Minnesota Vikings stadium project is about to get its formal infusion of money from the state. The Department of Minnesota Management and Budget will sell $467 million in bonds early next week to cover the public share of the $1 billion construction budget.
It’s officially two days until the end of an era, as the Vikings and their fans get set for the team’s final game at the Metrodome, and the last day the public will be allowed inside. But things will be different at this game for another reason.
The Minnesota Vikings plan a big weekend for fans as the team closes out its final season at the Metrodome. The festivities begin Saturday with a “Last Season, Last Call” event from 4-7 p.m. at Mall of America Field at the downtown Minneapolis dome.
The big dig is on. Construction on a new Vikings stadium is well underway. In fact, it’s going so fast that the demolition of the old Dome could happen soon. Mortenson Construction Company, the builder of the new stadium, has already removed 100,000 tons of dirt, creating a vast hole that is essentially a foundation for the new facility. Workers are putting in the pilings to secure the outer perimeter. All of this is in preparation for the last Dome event: the Vikings game against the Lions on Dec. 29.
There’s more objection surrounding the new Vikings stadium on Thursday, a little more than a week after officials broke ground on one of the largest construction projects in Minnesota history. Except this time it literally deals with areas surrounding the new stadium.
The Minnesota Vikings and Wells Fargo have reached a preliminary agreement to resolve a conflict surrounding a development near the team’s new stadium. Vikings vice president of stadium development Lester Bagley says the agreement was reached on Saturday night. It establishes parameters for roof signage on a new Wells Fargo tower close to the new Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The Vikings were concerned that the proposed signing violated city ordinances and would deter other companies from pursuing naming rights deals for the new stadium.
