Today U.S. Bank Stadium will host Super Bowl LII. For nearly three years, I took weekly pictures of the Metrodome demolition through new stadium construction. Below are some of my favorites.
It all started when I happened to ask a police officer why he was blocking off the road next to the Metrodome one Sunday morning. He said that they were going to be blowing up the walls of the Metrodome in a few minutes, so we stuck around. Here’s the footage I shot on my cell phone that morning with the kids in the car with me.
After that, I’ve been intrigued with the demolition of the Metrodome and the construction of the new Vikings Stadium.
I took pictures just about every week. Here are a couple of time lapses of the construction as well as links to the stadium’s progress since construction started.
