• Final hurrah for the Georgia Dome

    By: Edgar Treiguts | WSB Radio


    ATLANTA - This is it for the Georgia Dome. Sunday marks the final event inside the facility, before it is cleared-out and eventually demolished.

    The Monster Jam truck show goes off at 3:30 Sunday afternoon, following the same event Saturday night.   

    The Dome is ending its 25-year life span, having hosted the Falcons, two Super Bowls, college football - including the SEC Championship games, Olympic events, and other events.  It was built for $214 million, opening in 1992.  It is making way for Mercedes-Benz Stadium next door, being constructed for $1.5 billion. 


    After Sunday, the process of clearing-out the Georgia Dome will begin. 

    The AJC reports that will include asset liquidation, such as the sell-off of the stadium’s seats. 

    To follow in April, the Dome’s utilities will be disconnected, interior demolition in late May, capped by the building’s implosion in August.
