Super Bowl LIII: What needs to be cleaned up?

- Atlanta has a long “to-do” list to get back to normal following Super Bowl LIII.

SKYFOX 5 flew over Atlantic Station Monday as crews began to dismantle the temporary venue set up for Saturday’s Foo Fighter’s concert as part of the festivities.

All the Super Bowl decorations on buildings, including Mercedes-Benz Stadium, will need to come down.

The Super Bowl Experience is packing up for the year from inside the World Congress Center.

Inside Centennial Olympic Park, the Super Bowl LIVE venue is being stowed away.

Barriers and miles of fencing from around the Super Bowl campus will need to come down as well as temporary signs.

Inside, crews will be pulling up the turf soon. No need to replace it right away with the next big scheduled event being 2019 Monster Jam toward the end of the month and the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross at the beginning of next month.

Also, crews will be working all week to take down the hundreds of banners on Atlanta’s streetlight celebrating the Super Bowl.
