The folks building the new Vikings stadium are taking their show on the road, starting next week.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority this morning announced a four-date tour  to include builders Mortenson Construction and Thor Construction.

The plan is  to provide an overview of the project, introduce the project team, review the construction schedule and let suppliers and vendors know how to get in on the business.

“We want to ensure that we get the word out to all potential vendors and contractors that there are many opportunities to get involved,” Mortenson senior vice president John Wood said in the release announcing the stops.

Here are the details:

  • July 29: Minneapolis– International Market Square, Studio 185, 275 Market St.
  • Aug. 6: Rochester– Marriott, Ballroom II, 101 1st Ave. Southwest
  • Aug. 7: Duluth– Greysolon Ballroom by Black Woods, Moorish Room, 231 East Superior St.
  • Aug. 8: Mankato– City Center Hotel, Hughes Johnson Banquet Room, 101 East Main St.

The stadium authority and the designers will be touring the state with more details on the stadium design. Those are scheduled for Aug. 20 in Duluth, Aug. 21 in Mankato and Sept. 18, in Moorhead.
