KPost installs a dome roof system on the Dallas Cowboys Stadium

Texas Stadium, Irving, opened Oct. 24, 1971, and was home to the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys for almost 40 years. In the mid-1990s, Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones announced he wanted to expand the open-air facility to accommodate more spectators; add retractable roof panels to protect the stadium's interior from the elements; and incorporate a climate-control system so the stadium could host sporting events year-round.
