Public company organising the tender for a $975-million stadium was to announce the contractor's name yesterday. But instead, they only narrowed it to two firms, declaring final selection in a few days, postbulletin.com reads.
Of six construction companies expressing interest only three submitted their formal bids to construct the new 65,000-seater in Minneapolis. Minnesota Sport Facilities Authority was to announce the contractor yesterday, but didn't meet the deadline.
Instead, MSFA announced that one of those three bidders, Skanska, is no longer running for the deal. This leaves Hunt Construction Group of Arizona and a local company, Mortenson Construction.
New announcement date isn't precise, but MSFA suggest it should be late next week.
