INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -After nearly 25 years aloft, the RCA Dome's roof will be coming down.
Officials announced Friday that the 16 large fans that keep the roof inflated will be turned off on Sept. 24. Once that happens, the fabric roof will sink into the stadium within 30 to 45 minutes.
A ceremony will feature former Mayor Bill Hudnut - during whose administration the stadium was built - flipping the switch. The roof will be cut into pieces and sold as memorabilia.
The dome opened in 1984. It was the Indianapolis Colts' home until August, when the new Lucas Oil Stadium opened nearby.
The implosion of the stadium has been planned for December.
