MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) The selection of a construction manager for a new Minnesota Vikings stadium is being pushed back a week.
The Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority say the new deadline for choosing the construction manager is now Feb. 1. Authority Chairwoman Michele Kelm-Hagen says bidders asked for more time to put together their proposals.
The slight delay isn't expected to affect groundbreaking on the $975 million stadium. It's still projected for October.
The team hopes to be playing in the new stadium by the 2016 season.
