MSU Dome Construction
In 1979 the MSU Dome was under construction and in August of that year the radial trusses that support the dome roof were being place. The Dome was built at a cost of about $4.5 million. It would take 1 ½ to 2 months to place all the roof trusses. It seems that the trusses were placed on edge and joined in the center on a special platform that was later removed after all were installed.
