Former Baylor football stadium reaches the end zone

The demolition process has started at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco, Texas.

Demolition crews have started working at Floyd Casey Stadium on the campus of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. The stadium served as the home of Baylor’s football team for more than 60 years, from 1950 to 2013.

According to an online article  prepared by the Waco Tribune, Hutchins, Texas-based Lloyd D. Nabors Demolition LLC   is in charge of the project, which is scheduled to be completed by July 2016.

University officials quoted in the Tribune article say abatement and remediation steps will need to be taken first, including checking for asbestos. Materials recycling will be a priority during the project, as “all parts of the stadium will be sorted as demolition progresses, and as much material as possible will be salvaged for scrap or recycled,” according to the article.

The city of Waco and the university are considering proposals to redevelop the site of the former stadium once it is cleared, with options that could include mixtures of residential, commercial, office and recreational uses.
