PONTIAC (AP) - Crews renovating the Pontiac Silverdome have deflated the roof ahead of the start of work to return the former home of the Detroit Lions to use.
Silverdome events coordinator Alex Loewy said stadium owner Triple Investment Group LLC will begin renovations this spring and summer. He said work will include a new roof with solar panels.
Loewy told The Oakland Press that the roof deflation Thursday will save energy costs and clear the way for a more efficient, renewable alternative.
The 80,300-seat stadium was completed in 1975 at a cost of $55 million in the dollars of that time. It was sold at auction in 2009 for $583,000.
The Lions played at the Silverdome until 2002. The team now plays at Ford Field in Detroit.
