Minneapolis Dome repairs won't happen until March

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA (KWWL) -- The collapsed roof on Minnesota's Metrodome won't be repaired until at least March.

Three panels on the bubble roof burst under the weight of snow on December 12 pouring snow down onto the football field below.

The repairs will force a change of venue for hundreds of college baseball games in winter and spring.

Teams throughout the mid-west, including the University of Minnesota, use the dome for indoor games until the weather warms up.

About 300 baseball games were scheduled for February and March in the dome.
