Roof of Bucks’ old home de­mol­ished

The Sacramento Bee - - Sports -

Dozens of small, si­mul­ta­ne­ous ex­plo­sions brought down the steel roof of the Bradley Cen­ter, the for­mer home of the Mil­wau­kee Bucks, in a con­trolled de­mo­li­tion Sun­day that left some de­bris scat­tered in the street.

The Bradley Cen­ter closed last sum­mer, and the Bucks moved next door to the $524 mil­lion Fis­erv Fo­rum. The NBA team bid the 30-year-old arena a fond farewell in a se­ries of tweets.

The aim of the ex­plo­sions was to col­lapse the roof into the seat­ing bowl, mak­ing it eas­ier for work­ers to re­move the de­bris. The Mil­wau­kee Jour­nal Sen­tinel re­ported that while some de­bris soared into the air, the bulk of the struc­ture col­lapsed into the old arena’s struc­ture as planned.
