Less than one week stands between the Georgia Dome and its explosive demise.
At 7:30 a.m. next Monday, demolition crews will push the plunger on the 25-year-old stadium, sealing its place in Atlanta history.
The demolition will require numerous road closures and the suspension of MARTA service on the Green and B
lue lines all morning Monday.
But before that happens, we headed over to document the stadium in its final days on earth.
In preparation for the implosion, crews have been working for months to remove items from the building, carve out places for the charges, and protect surrounding properties. Check out how things are taking shape:
State officials are requesting that people watch the demolition on TV, but for those hoping to catch the Dome’s demise in person, it promises to be a sight to see. (The implosion of the State Archives earlier this year was a spectacle.) In any case, be sure to check on road closures and the large exclusion zone before heading out Monday.
