Repairs Almost Done to Reliant Stadium

Today’s Houston Chronicle has an update on the repairs to Reliant Stadium:

Reliant Stadium’s retractable roof has lost its gap-tooth look and should as good as new in plenty of time for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which runs March 3-22. The five giant panels that were torn asunder by the fury of Hurricane Ike — or debris flung through the air by the storm — in the wee hours of Sept. 13 have been replaced and the process of tightening, stretching and waterproofing the new pieces is well under way with completion expected by mid-February.

“Right now, we’re making sure all the detail work is done,” Mark Miller, the Reliant Park general manager, said Monday. “The repairs are substantially complete. We’re expecting it to be 100 percent for the Rodeo. “But we probably won’t have our first real good test until they get all the final connections made and then get a good hard rain to see how much touch-up there is to do after that. We can’t water-test it ourselves.”
