October 30, 2007

Photo essay by Steve Share, Labor Review editor

The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners voted final approval November 6 for the proposed design of the new ballpark for the Minnesota Twins. Site preparation work already has  begun. The general contractor, Mortenson, will build the ballpark under a Project Labor Agreement with the Minneapolis Building & Construction Trades Council. Completion is scheduled for 2010. At an October 30 meeting, a model of the 40,000-seat open air stadium was on display for Commissioners, the news media, and the public.

For more information on the new ballpark, visit the Minnesota Twins website.
