Officials at Allen ISD announced Thursday that the district's $60 million stadium is closed for now due to cracks in the concrete in the stadium's elevated level.
Allen ISD's graduation ceremony in June, along with home football games, will likely be affected as the stadium is closed for evaluations and repairs.
An engineering firm is reviewing the problem. So far, no one knows what caused the cracks or who will pay to fix them.
For now, tarps are covering large sections of the concourse level to help keep water from freezing in cracks in the concrete.
The cracks were reportedly noticed just before the stadium's Aug. 2012 opening.
The facility seats 18,000 and features a weight room, golf simulator and wrestling practice room in addition to the stadium facilities.
The stadium was paid for by tax payers who approved a bond issue for the stadium in 2009.
