“The Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo have presented to Harris County Commissioners a study prepared by two firms to determine the budget, scheduling and execution of decommissioning and demolishing the Reliant Astrodome.
“The study indicates that imploding the Astrodome and replacing the structure with a parking lot would cost $29,061,827.”
That’s just $6 or $7 million less than it cost to build America’s first domed stadium, which opened in 1965."
