Vikings' Stadium, Other Projects to Boost Minnesota Construction

May 22, 2012

Minnesota has lost nearly 40,000 construction jobs since 2006, so building the Minnesota Vikings' $975 million football stadium, along with action on another $496 million in infrastructure projects, will give the region a much-needed economic boost and create some 25,000 construction jobs.

"These measures are certainly a step in the right direction, but we have a long way to go to recover," said David Semerad, chief executive officer of the Minnesota chapter of AGC, to the (Minneapolis-St. Paul) Star-Tribune.
