Second implosion of Pontiac Silverdome a success

The implosion is scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday.

Downstate crews are investigating why the Silverdome in Pontiac failed to implode during its planned demolition over the weekend. The blasts were meant to break the beams and cause the colossal ring to come crashing down, WDIV reported. "Before we made any further announcements, we wanted to make sure we had our ducks in a row", Adamo President Richard Adamo, said. However, construction crews said the implosion did work.

The blast was meant break the metal beams that support the upper ring of the stadium; a 20-foot steel band that supported the equipment that was used to keep the roof inflated. Then, each vertical beam surrounding the Silverdome will be broken when a small charge detonates, causing the steel ring to fall to the ground.
