I don't believe a final decision has been made concerning how to demolish the dome.

The most logical way would be to take down the roof first and proceed to dismantle the seating bowl section by section with strategic use of a wrecking ball where appropriate.

While I am sure that progress is being made on the stadium, it is frustrating not to be able to view it on the webcam.

Here are two links for you of the stadium:

This is a 15 min update and behind the scenes of the stadium

http://www.in.gov/iscba/media/webcam.html/

This is a live webcam of the stadium

http://iccrd.com/stdm/index.aspx

Hope this is what you are looking for. Both of them are pretty cool. The first one you can go back to the very beginning and go thru each time, day, or month. Plus, it had construction updates, aerial photos, and pics of the inside.

Thank you aavmarine but what I was trying to communicate was the fact that I could not view the present construction progress on the webcam, as it it appeared that the northern section of the stadium was not a focal point. That changed with the construction of the first roof truss.

I have the url for the oxblue LOS webcam and have been able to enjoy the stadium rising.

I love Cor-Ten steel as a building material. It's also used for bridge beams, and I think it is possibly the most attractive material out there for simple bridge spans.

Went downtown to the zoo today. I really wish they can expand it by like 200 acres. Anyways, my little girl and I stopped by the LOS and took a couple pics. I don't know if I like the stadium that close to South street. It just looks out of place. I mean it is the front of what will be one of the best stadiums in the world, and there is hardly no room. The NW corner only seems to be about 20 ft from the street, and from the renderings it seems like they can put a circus in there. Has anyone heard if they might close that section down between Capital and Missouri, and have the traffic re-directed around the Luke? That would give a whole lot more room to play around with.

P.S. I would put the pics on this post, but I don't know how too. Can anyone please help me? Talk slow if you know what I mean.

I know there won't be this much room in the front. But, it will still be an awesome place.

it looks as if the LOS on the roof has been removed from the renderings.

Actually, I don't see it on any of the renderings. The only time I saw it was in the 3-D video.

I sure hope the city fixes up South Street after the stadium opens, because it is in a state of disrepair. Crumbling pavement and weathered lane markings.

From an urban planning aspect, I'm sure most of us aren't happy with the angular orientation of the stadium. But given that they did -- and I'm sure the views from inside will be great -- I'm ok with the way it's working out. If the area at the corner is even smaller, I think that actually helps with pulling it into the urbam fabric. The corner is still going to be great for crowd gathering as people move from the city into the stadium on game day.

South Street's sidewalks are absolute crap, and way too narrow to handle the amount of pedestrian traffic the Luke will bring to that area. I hope they plan on widening/repaving them.

I think within the next year or maybe in so many months they are going to start to do something with each corner around LOS. This morning I saw again (on the corner of South and Missouri) for about the tenth time people out there taken measurments of the streets or corners. I think they might bring theses streets up to date.

I sure hope so. That street needs a new coat of pavement and new sidewalks.

sweet, the LOS is going to look like a railroad gritty building.
As far as LOS labeling, I mean, its labeled enough, but on the roof will just look tacky!

After really soaking in the progress on the project and getting a feel for how it will actually look, I've come to think that this will definately be one of the most unique stadiums in the country, if not THE most unique.

They will disassemble them on site and take them out piece by piece I suppose.
