Texas Stadium Demolition Set

The city has moved forward with plans to demolish Texas Stadium via implosion, which was determined to be the safest way to remove the structure.

Dallas-based Weir Brothers was awarded approximately $5.9 million to implode the iconic stadium. The company will help ensure that the citys environmental stewardship goals are satisfied. Included in these initiatives is a directive for 95 percent of the concrete and steel to be recycled.
 
The Texas Department of Transportation is leasing the stadium property for a staging area during reconstruction of the adjacent highways. Notice to proceed with the demolition is expected this month. Preliminary scheduling places the implosion in early 2010, with a completion date of next July.
