For those of us in the upper midwest and interested in the NFL…that site has been in the news a lot as one of the propsed sites for a new Minneapolis football stadium…and they speak often of the “clean up” of the site as well. My guess, there will be a new stadium but not on that site (more likely downtown MSP)

Did not know that! Going for a “bomb” would take on a whole new meaning if the stadium would have been built there. I’d love to be on the “Clean-Up” crew! I bet there are historical treasures all over the place that will not be saved.

Not knowing the status of the TW site at present, if it hasn’t been substantially “Cleaned Up” already, the process will take far longer than anyone in the NFL would want to wait. Such remediation projects typically take many, and sometimes many, many, years to complete. It involves vastly more work than just bringing in some bulldozers, wrecking balls, and dump trucks.
