It does feature excellent access to I-35. But I heard it would be a land swap where a smaller airport just north of there would be converted to malls and light industrial, and this site would become the:

Twin Cities-Anoka Air Park

It is supposedly an army munitions clean up r.e. depleted U that is undergoing NRC D-plan approval.   Curious if anyone has info about possible work. It is on the land proposed for the stadium.

A St. Paul company won a $20.6 million contract to clean up the state's largest Superfund site, land in Arden Hills that also is being considered as the potential home of a proposed $1.1 billion Minnesota Vikings stadium.

The Ramsey County Board, by a 4-3 vote Tuesday, approved the contract with Carl Bolander & Sons Co. for the cleanup of 430 acres, some of which could be used for a stadium, other unspecified development and a wildlife preserve.

Even though the board approved the contract, nothing will happen unless state money comes through and the contract returns to the board for another approval. In voting against the contract, some commissioners said the proposal was premature and could bind the county to action even without state money......

I did the D&D of their DU rooms 10/2001 - 03/2003.

The facility is called "Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant" (TCAAP), and is an Army facility.

Some of the building were operated by ATK (Like the DU portions)

A great summary is here (make sure to click on the more info tab for more great reading):

Pictures of my visit are here:

Here is our facility info for it:

Google map pin is on the building I did with the DU):,-93.1713

Mike, I get nightmares every time one of those pictures come up on the random...

I would tend to think "most' of the cleanup left would be chemical, that's not to say that there might not be the random bit of DU here and there.  While Mike and I were there we were called out to ATK's Elk River test range a couple times due to DU being found after their license for such material had been closed for that facility.
