The demolition of the Old Ralph Engelstad Arena is inching closer to completion. Officials say the metal structure should be completely torn down by next week.

Crews have been demolishing the building since July. They say they're on schedule, and hope to start on the final phase of the project next week. Seats from the arena are still for sale at Berger Enterprises in Emerado. Paintings and other memorabilia will also be offered.

After the metal structure is cleared, the concrete bowl and finally the parking lot will follow. Once demolition is complete, a new indoor practice facility will be built in its place. Officials hope to start this fall.
