Three companies submit bids for stadium
Mortenson Construction of Minneapolis, Hunt Construction of Arizona and Skanska of New York are angling to build the $975 million stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Bidding ended Monday.

The authority and the Vikings plan to pick and announce their construction firm in the first week of February. They hope to have the stadium ready for the 2016 NFL season.
