Second implosion planned for part of GA Dome still standing


ATLANTA – The Georgia World Congress Center Authority has announced plans for a second, supplemental implosion to bring down the remaining part of the Georgia Dome.

Gate B and the East Wall of the dome stayed standing during the initial implosion on Nov. 20.

Exactly one month later, on Dec. 20, crews will demolish the final section.

“This process has been determined to be the safest method to bring down the remaining infrastructure still standing,” The GWCCA said in a release.

The implosion will happen at 1 a.m. Wednesday.

MARTA plans to suspend rail service from Five Points to Vine City beginning at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Bus shuttle service available as an alternative.
