From initial interest to bidding, the new construction company to lead building the Minnesota Vikings stadium has quickly been narrowed down to two businesses – including one from Golden Valley.
Mortenson Construction, according to a Star Tribune report, along with Arizona-based Hunt Construction, have both been named as finalists to build the $975 million sports venue in Minneapolis.
"They're both really strong firms and really good proposals," Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority Chair Michele Kelm-Helgen told the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
As one of the biggest construction contractors in the Minnesota, Mortenson has a history of leading construction on projects such as Target Field and TCF Bank Stadium, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reported.
An announcement was expected on Friday, but the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority decided it needed more time. A decision could come as early as next week.
