Six firms will be in the running to manage construction of the new Minnesota Vikings football stadium. The Associated Press reports that the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority released a list of firms that attended a pre-proposal meeting for prospective construction managers. The companies' proposals are due January 21, and the choice will be announced Feb. 1.
Minnesota companies on the list include Mortenson Construction, Kraus-Anderson, and Loeffler Construction. Gibane Building Companies of Rhode Island, Skanska of New Jersey and Hunt Construction of Arizona are also interested.
The $1 billion facility, to be built in downtown Minneapolis, is shooting for opening for the 2016 NFL season.
