New 4D Construction Model Released by Mortenson
Earlier this week Mortenson Construction released a new 4D model that shows what remains with the project as of this week. If you haven't seen it, it's worth the two minutes.
What's Your #VikingsLegacy?
Recently the Vikings launched vikingslegacy.com, a site that allows fans to briefly look at the past, the present and the future of the organization. Through the site, fans can sign up for the new stadium waitlist or join the team now and guarantee new stadium seat priority by purchasing season tickets for the 2014 season. Fans are also encouraged to give their favorite Vikings moment by using #VikingsLegacy on social media.
On Thursday, a major piece of the new Vikings stadium's steel "prow" was lifted. When completed, the west prow is expected to reach more than 270 feet above grade.
Just How High Will the Stadium Reach?
In case you missed it, on Thursday a large piece of structural steel that will ultimately make up the stadium's west "prow," was placed on site. At its peak, the prow, which will be the highest point of the stadium, will reach more than 270 feet above grade. The other half of the prow is scheduled to be placed next week, another major milestone in the project. Watch the first half go up below, and view photos of the piece here.
State Fairgrounds Parking Now Available for Tailgating
With the 2014 Minnesota State Fair behind us, the fairgrounds are now available for Vikings fans' parking/tailgating needs on game day. Approximately 1,500 spaces will be available for tailgating on Lot 108 at a cost of $20 per game. This is a convenient option for fans who do not want to deal with traffic. University buses will pick fans up at the lot, travel down the University's transitway and drop fans directly in front of TCF Bank Stadium for an expected total ride of less than 10 minutes. Fans can purchase season or single-game parking passes for the State Fairgrounds (St. Paul Lot) here.
