After the Metrodome's roof was successfully deflated Saturday, workers began demolishing parts of the lower part of the Dome this week, including a loading dock, the Vikings Lounge and the area near Gate B.
Yesterday, we spotted a few brave souls on the rim of the roof. But today, officials from the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said work is continuing in frigid weather, but has slowed a bit.
If machine operators can work, they will be working from the safety of their heated rigs, the Authority said, noting some interior work is being done, weather permitting.
Aluminum framing for glass is being installed today, and the first panes of glass will be put up at the new Minnesota Vikings stadium next week. The glass will be transparent, not the bird-safe etched product that waterfowl advocates sought.
