Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins opened in 2010. This new $ 412M, 40,000 seat ballpark features spectacular views of the Minneapolis skyline. This open air facility features materials native to Minnesota including: limestone façade, native flowers, trees, and shrubs.
Meyer, being one of the first contractors on site, performed utility installations and relocations to accommodate the new skyway and walkway system from the existing Target Center and adjacent parking structure facilities. A Live 18” sanitary sewer, water main, and storm sewer were all relocated. Involved with the live relocate of Target Center water and sanitary systems included coordination with Minneapolis Public Works, City events and traffic accommodation. Storm treatment structures were also added.
A significant obstacle to the project was the closure I-394 into downtown Minneapolis. MNDOT, MN State Patrol, City of Minneapolis, Minneapolis Public Works, Hennepin County, FHWA and MN Sports Commission were all included with the well-timed, extremely efficient shut-down.
