Allen Pushes to Expedite Stadium Repairs

The Allen Independent School District is taking steps to make sure its cracking football stadium gets fixed as soon as possible.

Monday night the school board voted to spend $2 million to expedite repairs.

The $60 million stadium has cracks in the concourse and is riddled with structural issues.

Both the stadium's architect and builder have said they will pay for the repairs, but the district wants to get the ball rolling and then let those companies decide who will pay them back the $2 million.

"The $2 million is only a security blanket for the district so that we don't slow the process," said Lance Hindt, superintendent of the Allen Independent School District.

The stadium is already out of play for the upcoming 2014 football season. The district hopes to have the stadium repaired by May so that it can host graduation ceremonies.
