Disputed Vikings stadium costs of $15 million headed for mediation


MINNEAPOLIS — About $15 million in disputed construction costs for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium could be settled with the help of a mediator.

Contractor M.A. Mortenson Co. applied for mediation after the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority balked at the $15 million. The authority is overseeing construction of the $1 billion stadium on behalf of taxpayers. The public is covering about half the cost of the new stadium, which is expected to open next summer.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1Iqz3vk ) says the contracting company has also applied for arbitration if mediation is unsuccessful.
