The fourth queen’s post truss and the third on the new stadium roof’s north side was placed this week. The 11 total queen’s post trusses will run north and south and support the roof’s metal decking and ETFE material.
On Wednesday the fifth piece of the new stadium’s roof ridge truss was placed, bringing the massive structures stemming from both the east and west sides of the stadium one step closer to connecting almost directly above what will be the 50-yard line.
On Friday, Zygi and Mark Wilf shared heartfelt thanks to nearly 1,000 construction workers who are helping a dream design of the new Vikings stadium become a reality.
ESPN soccer analyst and Minnesota native Taylor Twellman was at Winter Park recently to talk about the support of soccer in Minnesota, the prospects of MLS in downtown Minneapolis, and much more.
Earlier this week the first of 10 queen’s post trusses was placed on the construction site. Weighing 280,000 pounds and measuring 190 feet long by 11.5 wide, the steel beam extends north from the center ridge truss.
