ATLANTA - The portions of the Georgia Dome that remained standing after the building’s implosion last month will be brought down next week, officials said Wednesday.
A “supplemental implosion” has been scheduled for 1 a.m. on Dec. 20 to remove a long wall on the stadium’s east end and a structure around Gate B on the northwest corner.
The Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which operated the Dome, said the second implosion “has been determined to be the safest method to bring down the remaining infrastructure still standing.”
The Georgia Dome was the home of the Atlanta Falcons until the Falcons’ new home Mercedes-Benz Stadium opened in August.
