Metrodome roof facing Saturday collapse

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (WKOW) -- Sometime Saturday, crews are scheduled to collapse the roof of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis.

But, they'll have to postpone if the wind is too strong; crews say they wouldn't be able to deflate the fiberglass fabric roof, which is supported by air pressure

Stadium officials don't want a bunch of people coming down to watch, so they're not saying what time they plan to collapse the roof.

But, they are showing it live on vikings.com.

The Metrodome is being torn down to make way for a new, one billion dollar stadium on the same site.
