KUHF Conversations: Harris Co. Judge Ed Emmett On The Future Of The Astrodome

Another study is underway to figure out what the future holds for the Astrodome. None of the possible options is quick, or cheap. It would cost at least $120 million to tear it down (with a quarter of that going to pay off the outstanding bonds). And renovating the Dome so it could, once again, be a public venue of some sort might cost upwards of $300 to $500 million. Harris County would have to get voters to say yes to selling bonds to raise that kind of money.
