Allianz Soccer Stadium Archaeology Monitoring

St Paul, MN
Minnesota United FC began construction on a 19,000-seat Major League Soccer stadium located in St. Paul’s Midway neighborhood. The city will oversee the project’s compliance with applicable state laws, including the Minnesota Field Archaeology and Minnesota Historic Sites Act.
Scope
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 will be affected.
Outcome
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.
