The organization that runs the Edward Jones Dome has made it official: The facility will not get a publicly funded $700 million upgrade that the St. Louis Rams requested. 

St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission President Kathleen Ratcliffe informed the Rams of the decision in a letter dated Tuesday. 

It was no surprise. After arbitrators ruled in favor of the Rams' plan over a much more modest CVC proposal, the CVC said in February it was unlikely to implement the plan. 

The decision allows the Rams to break their lease with the dome after the 2014 season, creating the possibility that the Rams could leave St. Louis. 

The team's offices were closed Friday for the long Fourth of July holiday and a spokesman was unreachable.
