Mercedes-Benz Stadium - New Home for the Atlanta Falcons
Talk about a lot of cranes! This fascinating time-lapse video of construction of the new stadium for the Atlanta Falcons shows assembly of the stadium plus the 17,000 tons of steel put in place for the retractable roof structure. If you watched carefully, you would have noticed several lattice columns being erected that at first looked like tower crane supports. These are temporary supports for the roof construction.
Construction is ongoing. Check out the four webcams here to get a view of what's inside right now, including the numerous cranes and temporary supports. And if you have time, this drone flyover gives a close-up of work in action.
The stadium, featuring a six-foot tall 360-degree HD video halo board, is scheduled to open in time for the 2017 NFL season..
