It's always sad to see the old stadiums with such history get demolished for the corporate greed.

None Georgia Dome to be imploded on November 20

on Sat Jun 10, 2017 4:43 pm
Recent progress on the construction of Mercedes-Benz Stadium has led officials to set a date for demolishing the Georgia Dome next door.

The Dome — the Falcons’ home for the past 25 years — is now scheduled for implosion at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 20, the team said Friday.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is slated to open Aug. 26 with a Falcons-Arizona Cardinals exhibition game.

The original plan was for the Dome to be imploded in July, but that plan was scrapped in April to keep the building in place a bit longer as an “insurance policy” against further construction delays with the new stadium. Issues related to steel work on the retractable roof caused three previous delays in the opening date.

The process of “de-commissioning” the Georgia Dome and preparing it for implosion will re-start “in earnest over the next two weeks,” according to the Falcons.
