ALLEN (CBSDFW.COM) – Later this week, a new report about the cause of the cracks at Allen’s Eagle Stadium will be made public.
Allen ISD board members were briefed on the report, which details the problems that shut down the district’s $60 million dollar football stadium.
The architectural firm that designed the stadium delivered the presentation during a closed-door meeting that lasted several hours Monday evening.
Cracks in the stadium were first discovered last year. In February, they had spread to the point where the stadium was declared unsafe and closed.
Since then, high school senior class graduation was moved to another location and next season’s football team will play all it’s games away from home.
The architects and construction company, PBK and Pogue Construction respectively, have been told to come up with a solution to repair the cracks and pay for it.
Allen’s school board president CBS 11 on Monday that she hopes to get some “options on the table.”
After the closed-door meeting, Allen Superintendent Dr. Lance Hindt, released this statement:
“Tonight the Allen ISD Board received a report from Nelson Architectural Engineers regarding Eagle Stadium. The report was given verbally, accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation. This report was limited to findings that identified shortcomings in the engineering and/or construction at the stadium and did not include recommendations for final repairs or cost estimates, which are being developed by Datum Engineers and are not completed.
Since there is no final written report, we expect to make the PowerPoint available later this week, pending review by our attorney. The administration and school board remain committed to providing information to the public as soon as it is available and when it does not jeopardize any contractual or legal obligation.”
