Portions Of $60M Texas Stadium May Be Demolished
Portions of a $60 million Texas high school football stadium that opened just two years ago may have to be demolished and rebuilt after structural flaws were found.
A report by Plano-based Nelson Forensics says cracks found at Eagle Stadium in the Dallas suburb of Allen may be caused by substandard concrete work and improper structural design of reinforcing steel.
“The cracking has decreased the service life of the structure and potentially decreased its structural capacity,” the report states.
The firm told Allen school district officials it tested three concrete samples and found dark paste that’s typical of poorly cured concrete, which can erode durability.
The firm presented its preliminary findings in January at the request of the Allen district. The report was released Wednesday to The Dallas Morning News after an open records request.
