Although the Pontiac Silverdome was scheduled to implode, the stadium is still standing.

However, construction crews said the implosion did work. 

Crews placed explosives in steel beams, which did break off.

However, the Silverdome was "built a little too well," officials say. 

"We just have to wait and let gravity do its job," officials say. "It's going to collapse, we just don't know when. 

The construction foreman said crews are assessing the situation.
