At just over a year to completion, the new Vikings stadium is starting to look like -- a stadium. The sign, naming it the U.S. Bank Stadium, went into place Monday. The roof is creeping across, and the seat risers are in place.

The construction is on schedule for the stadium to open in August 2016. During a media tour on Monday, the outlines are taking shape.
