Minnesota United FC constructed a 19,000-seat Major League Soccer stadium in St. Paul’s Midway neighborhood. The city oversaw the project’s compliance with applicable state laws, including the Minnesota Field Archaeology and Minnesota Historic Sites Act.
Our archaeologists prepared an archaeological monitoring plan, ensuring efficient documentation and treatment of archaeological finds during stadium site preparation and construction. At the same time, our historians recommended the area of potential effect and determined that no national or state listed historic properties would be affected.
Our work enabled compliance with requests by the Minnesota Historic Preservation Office (MnHPO) and the Office of the State Archaeologist (OSA) while accommodating an incredibly fast-paced project schedule.
