INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Capital Improvement Board said two full openings and closings of the retractable roof at Lucas Oil Stadium were safely performed Thursday.

The roof had been closed and under inspection since three fans were injured by a falling bolt during a preseason Colts game in early September.

During inspections, several other loose bolts were found.

“Today the Capital Improvement Board, under the supervision of the Indiana State Convention and Building Authority and its design team, performed two full openings and closings of retractable roof on Lucas Oil Stadium. The roof performed as designed,” said John Klipsch, executive director of the Indiana State Convention and Building Authority.

Despite the safe tests, no decision has been made regarding this weekend’s Circle City Classic.

“The Capital Improvement Board will make additional information public when it becomes available.  There has been no decision made yet as to the opening of the roof for this weekend’s Circle City Classic football game,” Barney Levengood, executive director of the Capital Improvement Board.
