The new Vikings stadium is beginning to take shape in Minneapolis as construction continues.

A silver, steel structure was raised Wednesday, which will likely be part of the framing of the building.

Construction is expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2016-2017 season. The Vikings will play the next two seasons TCF Bank Stadium.
