Irving city officials expected to award Texas Stadium demolition contract tonight.
The Irving city council tonight is expected to award a contract for the demolition of Texas Stadium.
Irving Mayor Herb Gears says it’s a bittersweet feeling sad, but the beginning of a new opportunity for the stadium site. He says demolition crews won’t waste any time and expects everything to be done in less than a year.
The mayor tells KRLD the implosion will be a big event, although the city hasn’t finalized details. There’s been some work going on at the site for a while now, but it’s not related to demolition. The site is a staging area for a TxDot intersection project.
