Initially at risk are a 400-stall parking garage to be located a block north of the stadium, a skyway linked to a ramp a block south of the stadium, two large escalators, and up to 40 feet from the height of pivoting glass doors to be located at the main entrance.

The Vikings have advanced $13.1 million to fund the cost overruns, and a $62 million contingency fund exists.
