Check out images from the new Vikings stadium taken during a media tour that was given on October 20.

ICYMI – Media Tour Stadium Site; Construction Nearly 25% Complete

This past Monday, members of the local media were invited by the Vikings, the MSFA and Mortenson Construction to tour the new Vikings stadium construction site for the first time since significant work began nine months ago.  Included as part of the tour was an introduction to Mortenson's 4-D model, which General Superintendent Dave Mansell refers to as his "crystal ball" because it illustrates completion and projection of nearly 20,000 activities via a 3-D computer model over time. Mortenson representatives also explained that nearly $185 million of work has been completed and approximately 650 construction workers are currently calling the site home on a daily basis.

Prepare for Congestion During November 2 Home Game; Plan to Arrive Early

With a community march and rally scheduled to take place on the U of M campus and outside of TCF Bank Stadium prior to the Vikings game next Sunday, November 2, Vikings fans and Season Ticket Members should expect increased congestion pregame and are being encouraged to plan accordingly.

Along with leaving home early, fans are being asked to consider alternate routes to the stadium, including State Fairground tailgating lots. Approximately 1,500 spaces are available for tailgating on Lot 108 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. At a cost of $20, fans can park and tailgate in the lot before University buses pick them up, travel down the University's Transitway and drop fans off 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.

Fans can also access surface lots north of the old Metrodome/new stadium construction site as a cheap game day parking option. For just $10, fans can enter on the corner of 4th Street and Chicago Avenue, tailgate in the neighborhood in which they are accustomed, hop on the Green Line at the Downtown East location and arrive in front of TCF Bank Stadium minutes later. Fans can purchase passes for these lots here (Please note due to the heavy use of the Green Line, fans should prepare to leave the lots early in order to ensure arrival prior to kickoff).
