PONTIAC, MI — The controlled demolition was set for 8:30 a.m. Eastern on Sunday. The explosive charges went off all around the abandoned stadium, but the structure didn’t fall. The stadium’s roof had been removed prior to the scheduled implosion.

According to the demolition company’s press release, the building was supposed to collapse.

“The first implosion will break the metal beams at the perimeter of the stadium,” the company wrote. “The initial implosion of the Pontiac Silverdome, which has become a source of controversy and concerns for Pontiac residents is expected to draw a crowd of spectators.”

Officials with Adamo, the demolition company, said it did weaken the Silverdome, and it could still fall, but the timetable is uncertain.

This is a developing story.
