MILWAUKEE (AP) — Demolition experts will blow the roof off the former home of the Milwaukee Bucks this weekend.

The explosives will collapse the Bradley Center roof into the seating bowl making it easier for workers to remove the debris. The 30-year-old arena closed last summer and the Bucks have moved next door to the $524 million Fiserv Forum.

Work is in progress on demolishing the inside of the arena. The explosion on Sunday will mark major progress in removing the old arena. Herb Pundsack, project manager for Viet, the company overseeing the demolition tells the Journal Sentinel the goal for the project is keeping everything contained within the structure of the Bradley Center before it's removed.
