Photos: The dismantling of the ‘Dome continues

A week after they blew the roof off the Metrodome with explosives, demolition crews started taking down the outer walls of the Metrodome today.

They’re working in the Gate B area, just off of 4th Street. Plans call for the demolition to proceed counter-clockwise around the bowl to make way for the new stadium. If all goes as planned, the Metrodome will be nothing but a memory by May.

These photos were taken today by the Minnesota Sports Facility Authority:

This post initially incorrectly reported the demolition will proceed clockwise.

And you can find some earlier photos of the process here.
