Cracks in new Allen football stadium force close
A report commissioned by the district of Allen in Texas revealed cracks in the concrete of their $60-million football stadium, meaning the building is not strong enough to hold the maximum weight capacity of 18,000, The Dallas Morning News stated on May 19.
The stadium, which opened two years ago as the fifth-largest high school football stadium in the state, was closed by Allen Independent School District officials for the next football season. The building’s architects, PBK Architects, previously attributed the cracks to shrinkage in the concrete; however, the commissioned report revealed that engineers have discovered deficiencies in the design of the structure. The final conclusion of the report’s findings is expected to be released in June of this year, Superintendent Lance Hindt said.
