HOUSTON (AP) — A coalition of local and national preservation groups is taking its efforts to save the iconic but now shuttered Houston Astrodome to the streets.

On Monday, the coalition will debut a 26-foot long truck known as the “Dome Mobile,” which will travel around Houston during the next couple of weeks to educate people about a Nov. 5 ballot measure on the Astrodome’s future.

Voters will decide whether to approve authorizing up to $217 million in bonds to turn the stadium into a giant convention center and exhibition space.

Inside the Dome Mobile, visitors will be able to learn more about the proposal to save the Astrodome, write their Astrodome memories and preservation messages on a “story wall,” and walk on Astroturf from the stadium.
