MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings' brand new stadium is months away from completion, but already it needs repairs.

The Star Tribune reports U.S. Bank Stadium's gutter system is leaking and will need $4 million in fixes. The repair job will include taking off panels on nearly a full third of the stadium's facade, including removing the U.S. Bank Stadium logo.

Workers were removing the logo and wall panels Wednesday, as reporter Patrick Kessler tweeted:

The Star Tribune says the stadium is still expected to open in time for the 2016 NFL season.
