Leaky Gutter Damage to the New Minnesota Vikings Stadium (Feb. 28, 2016)

At the beginning of January, I noticed these large icicles hanging from the roof and snow build-up near the top of the new Minnesota Vikings Football Stadium.

Last week, the team began fixing the damage caused by leaky gutters by taking down the U.S. Bank sign, as well as many of the black panels. Below are several before and after pictures.

Here are some more pictures of what the stadium looked like this morning, now that many of the panels have been removed.

The picture below (sorry about the quality) shows the workers earlier this week, working late into the night with spotlights on the stadium, taking down the panels.

The StarTribune reported that the damage caused by the leaky gutters will cost $4 million to repair.
