The first phase of repairs to a $60 million high school football stadium in North Texas is complete.
KXAS-TV reports an Allen Independent School District administrator told the school board Monday night that the stadium is on track to reopen by May 1. He says the scoreboard has been reinforced with steel beams and concrete columns.
The arena was built just two years ago and seats 18,000 people. It was shuttered in June after structural cracks and other problems were found.
The district previously allocated $2 million for repair work but officials say the architect and construction firms are doing the work at no cost to the district.
The next phase of repairs will focus on fixing the concourse and adding steel beams to the stadium’s corners.
