NH Fabric dome that collapsed under snow, ice, going back up

The Associated Press

MILFORD, N.H. (AP) — A fabric dome covering a 94,000-square-foot athletic club arena in New Hampshire that collapsed under snow and ice in March is going back up.

The air-supported roof had depressurized. The Hampshire Dome, part of the Hampshire Hills Athletic Club in Milford, was closed at the time and there were no injuries. Milford got about 15 inches of snow.

The dome is scheduled to be back up in three days. Members of the Milford High School football team helped with some of the work to resurrect the dome. The Telegraph of Nashua reports the new one is expected to be taller with more volume and better able to handle the snow and ice.
