Despite Isaac, Superdome Ready For Rutgers-Tulane

Superdome chief Doug Thornton says Isaac has caused only minimal damage to property surrounding the stadium and that the dome will be ready to host Tulane’s scheduled opener against Rutgers on Saturday if the schools still want to play the game.

Tulane expects to make a final call by Thursday morning.

Thornton says the tropical storm, which was a hurricane for part of Wednesday, damaged signs, landscaping and banners, but the roof never leaked and the dome never lost power.

Key Superdome personnel have been advised to return to work by 1 p.m. Thursday.

Thornton says remaining obstacles to playing the game include the condition of the rest of the city and whether the airport reopens in time for Rutgers’ scheduled charter flight Friday.
