Future Uncertain For Collapsed Dome

Feb 26, 2019

(Omaha, NE)  --  The future is uncertain for the collapsed indoor recreation dome at the University of Nebraska Omaha.  School officials announced yesterday that they have hired a Minnesota-based company to determine if the Center Dome at 68th and Spring Streets can be repaired.  The dome collapsed during Saturday's snow storm, and a university employee discovered a rip in the dome's fabric yesterday.  Officials have not determined why the dome collapsed, but they say it could be due to the high winds and heavy snow.
