ALLEN, Texas — A suburban Dallas school board has approved $2 million in funding for repairs to flaws that closed its $60 million high school football stadium.

The Allen school board approved two resolutions that allocate the money and authorize the school district superintendent to pursue a repair contract.

The board says it doesn't expect to use the money but allocated it in case the stadium architects and builders can't settle who is liable for the flaws.

Structural cracks and other problems prompted district officials last month to close Eagle Stadium less than two years after it opened.

Forensic engineers reported finding extensive design flaws, which Superintendent Lance Hindt called "engineering failures." The major concerns were in the concourse framing, retaining walls, press box, single-story structures, main scoreboard and durability of the stadium.
