MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Crews are planning to use controlled explosive charges as they continue to demolish the roof structure of the Metrodome.

At 7:30 a.m. Sunday, crews will use the explosives to demolish a concrete ring beam. The demolition plan had to be revised after a section of the ring beam came down out of sequence on Monday.

Neighbors may experience vibration, dust and noise during the demolition. Nearby roads will be closed for safety reasons from 5:30 a.m. to about 9 a.m.

The light rail station at the Metrodome will also be closed during that time frame, and buses will be used to shuttle passengers between other stations.
