• New Falcons stadium site selection expected within 2 weeks


    ATLANTA - The Falcons plan to announce a site for their new stadium in the next two weeks.

    Channel 2’s Jim Strickland attended an event Wednesday morning during which Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he plans on ground breaking for the retractable-roof stadium to take place in April.

    The state is still in negotiations that will determine if the new stadium is built on the north or south side of the existing Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta.

    Blank said he expects the site selection process to be completed within two weeks.
