Georgia Dome

The Georgia Historical Society named the Georgia Dome an iconic site. The designation comes about 10 months after 5,000 pounds of explosives reduced the stadium to rubble.

Now, a historical marker sits where the Dome sat for 25 years.

We start with a conversation about transportation. Last week, local mayors and city leaders met to discuss transit and the I-285 expansion. Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul was at that meeting and tells us what he heard.

They say what goes up must come down, and the Georgia Dome is no exception to the evolving landscape of Atlanta. On November 20, 2017, we said farewell to the Dome, a staple of Atlanta entertainment since 1992.

As an icon, the Georgia Dome stood commandingly on the Atlanta skyline. Host to the 1996 Summer Olympics, two Super Bowls and countless Atlanta Falcons home games, the imposing stadium was a fixture for roughly 2 1/2 decades, since its completion in 1992 at a cost of $214 million.

Now, it's little more than a massive heap of concrete, steel and fiberglass.

The Dome wasn't built in a day, but it will be demolished in a flash on Monday morning.

Courtesy of the Atlanta Falcons, GPB will have a live stream of the implosion beginning at 7:00 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. We will also have an on-demand video of the demolition available shortly after the event in case you miss the live broadcast.
