The Detroit Pistons also called the Silverdome home for a decade, until 1988.
A demolition crew has made a second attempt at a partial implosion of the Pontiac Silverdome - and this time, it worked.
The implosion is scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday. There was supposed to be a secondary blast to bring down the beams, but the beams were still standing.
They say they will either rewire them and try again sometime this week, or just go at the structure with heavy equipment. Each vertical beam surrounding the Silverdome will house a small charge, which upon detonation; will cause the beams to break and the steel ring to fall to the ground.
The Old National Bancorp (ONB) Upgraded to "Buy" at Zacks Investment Research
BidaskClub upgraded Old National Bancorp from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research report on Thursday, September 28th. Stifel Financial Corp purchased a new position in shares of Old National Bancorp in the third quarter worth about $196,000.
If it hadn't worked, the entire stadium would have needed to be torn down by hydraulic excavators, possibly stretching the entire process for longer than a year.
The weather for Sunday is looking favorable for demoltion, but if it has to be rescheduled it will be pushed back one week.
Demolition company Adamo said its blasts weakened the iconic stadium, but failed to bring down the upper section as intended Sunday morning.
