MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Construction of the Minnesota Vikings stadium has reached the halfway point.

Officials from the team, general contractor Mortenson and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, the public agency in charge of the venue, provided a media update and tour of the site on Wednesday.

About 80 percent of the concrete has been poured, and the project remains on budget and on time for an opening in mid-July 2016. Workers have begun installing the glass, and the transparent roof panels will start being placed in June.

Including an additional $73.9 million pledged for amenities and aesthetics around the building by Vikings owners since construction began, the cost of the stadium will be about $1.06 billion. The public share is 47 percent.
