A month from today, explosions will ring out across downtown, signalling the end of an era in Atlanta sports.
The Georgia Dome will be imploded on the Monday morning before Thanksgiving, just 25 years after it opened.
As part of the demolition, streets around the area will be closed, forming an exclusion zone around the perimeter.
According to 11Alive, the closures will affect many major roads, including Andrew Young International Boulevard and Northside Drive between MLK, Jr. Drive and Joseph E. Boone Boulevard.
Minor streets included in the closure are Philips Drive, Magnum Street, Maple Street, Electric Avenue, and Postell Street.
The implosion is slated for 7:30 a.m., but streets will close hours in advance and remain closed until around 11 a.m.
Additionally, expect MARTA service to be disrupted on the Green and Blue lines around the time of implosion; a tunnel carrying the lines sits directly to the south of the stadium, between the Dome and its (hypothetically) convertible replacement.
For those wanting to commemorate the Dome, pieces of the old stadium are still available for purchase online.
