Downtown traffic closures, implosion Saturday

A building implosion and traffic closures associated with the event are planned for Saturday, June 29, between 6 a.m. and approximately 10 a.m., in a Safety Zone generally bounded by Pacific Avenue, North Field Street, San Jacinto Street and North St. Paul Street. Below is a map of the Safety Zone that will be in place Saturday morning.

Street closures will be in effect at 6 a.m. and will be lifted by 10 a.m. Off-duty Dallas Police officers will be providing traffic control and blocking streets inside the Safety Zone. The implosion is scheduled to take place at approximately 7:30 a.m. in the 500 block of North Ervay St.

Residents and drivers are asked to avoid the Safety Zone during the times noted. For those living within the boundary, the implosion will create a noise roughly as loud as an outdoor warning siren. An unavoidable dust cloud will be created that will dissipate in approximately five minutes, depending on wind conditions. Those living in or near the Safety Zone are encouraged to close windows and exterior doors prior to 7:30 a.m.

DART trains traveling near the Safety Zone will be held for 10 minutes prior to and after the implosion.
