I had heard there was some leaking from the snow gutter system - fixing the waterproofing?

I heard on KFAN the other day there was a rumor that they have to replace a bunch of it due to water seeping in behind the panels.

It seemed like they were putting the tiles up prematurely on that section (back in late October - early November), before the "tan" layer was finished. They made pretty quick progress on it over a couple days, then stopped completely. Not surprised that it's being redone.

What's with the pedestrian walk bridge along the south side of the stadium?

About 30% of US Bank Stadium exterior panels will come off to fix water damage. Leaks in snow gutters. $3-4 million repair.

Here's an article from MPR on the subject:

Lucky they are finding the leaks now and not once the stadium is open. Wonder who is going to get stuck paying to fix this water damage?

I saw a tweet implying Mortenson would be paying. And there's this from the linked article:
Wood [VP, Mortenso] said the designers and builders were covering the cost, so it won't be added to the project budget or cost taxpayers or the Vikings for the state-owned NFL stadium.

This picture doesn't do it justice, but the stadium looks pretty cool from the Witch's Hat.

New Webcam view on Mortenson's website. Looks like view 3 is where they are fixing the leaky gutter/replacing panels.

Not sure if this comment belongs in this thread, but I'm kind of loving/hating the Vikings wanting to rename part of Chicago Ave to Vikings Way, similar to Twins Way.

What happened to Kirby Puckett place? Did that go away when the Twins left?

It's still a commemorative name. The Vikings want both the commemorative name AND the actual name of the street changed. I sincerely hope it doesn't happen.

Yeah, I'm fine changing the commemorative name, but it is directly in conflict with the city's own street naming standards to change the official name of just a chunk of a street. Don't do it.

Why? Keep it as is. If the commemorative name is going to change it should be Child Beater St.

Maybe they should focus on making their team worthy of naming a street after before trying this.

Yeah, I guess that Sexual Assaulter Street is cooler than Child Beater Street.

Still too soon?

Actually, I agree we should get rid of all commemorative names around this place.
