View of new Vikings stadium, 375 days until kickoff

Signage was hoisted into place Monday morning, turning the new Minnesota Vikings stadium into U.S. Bank Stadium. It’s now 375 days until kickoff at the new, $1 billion stadium on the east end of downtown Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said stadium construction is now 65 percent complete. Crews have completed more than $550 million in stadium projects, at an average pace of $1.5 million per day.

Fox 9 reporter Rob Olson took a tour Monday morning, sharing his stadium access on Twitter:
