The Metrodome Roof Is 80% Replaced

According to the folks at KSTP, anyway, as you can see in the video here.


Well, this is certainly a positive. There's still 2 1/2 months until the Vikings' first pre-season game, and the roof has made some serious progress.

According to the video, the roof is made of stronger fabric and won't sit quite as high, thereby making it less susceptible to snow accumulation and better able to handle winter weather.

The one thing I'm sort of curious about, not being any sort of acoustics expert or anything, is how the new roof will fare in terms of the noise generated in the Metrodome compared to the roof that was on there previously. Is it going to make any difference at all? It would be kind of cool if it somehow managed to make the Metrodome an even louder place than it had been previously. . .does anyone have any insight into that sort of thing?
