ALLEN, TEXAS – We’re sure there’s some upset high school students in Allen, Texas.

A $60-million high school football stadium there… closed after large cracks were found in one of the elevated walkways.

Allen Eagle Stadium opened back in the fall of 2012… and it seats about 18,000 fans… well, at least it *used* to.

School officials say the troublesome cracks range anywhere from a quarter to three-quarters of an inch wide.

Now- as the stadium sits closed…  the company that built it works to determine what caused the cracks… and how they can be fixed.

The same construction is currently building the district’s $36-million service center… let’s hope they have better luck with that building… all these cracks are whack!
