ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Crews are tearing apart the Georgia Dome piece by piece. Much of the demolition has been on the inside of the stadium, but the entire structure will be imploded at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 20.

Although it's been part of Atlanta's skyline for the last 25 years, the Georgia Dome will come down in a matter of seconds.

The company behind the implosion is the Adamo Group out of Detroit. They've demolished a number of large structures in Michigan, but this will be an extremely challenging project, according to a report by the Georgia World Congress Center.

The Dome is surrounded on all four sides, including the new $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium to its south. The Dome sits just 86 ft. away.

Roads around the dome will be closed from 5:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Nov. 20. The following roads and intersections will be closed: 

  • Andrew Young International Blvd from Phillips Drive to Centennial Pkwy NW
  • Phillips Drive from Centennial Pkwy NW to Andrew Young International Blvd NW
  • Magnum St NW from MLK Jr Drive to Marietta St NW
  • Northside Drive from MLK Drive NW to Joseph E Boone Blvd NW
  • Maple St NW from MLK Drive NW to Northside Drive NW
  • Electric Ave NW from Maple St NW to Spencer St NW
  • Postell Street NW from Maple St NW to Rhodes St NW
  • Rhodes St NW from Electric Ave NW to Northside Drive NW
  • Magnolia St NW from Electric St NW to Northside Drive NW
  • Thurmond St NW from Electric Ave NW to Northside Drive NW
