ALLEN, Texas - A North Texas high school's $60 million stadium that has been shut down since February amid structural flaws will remain closed through the fall football season.

The Allen Independent School District on Tuesday announced consulting engineers found "significant" structural problems at Eagle Stadium.

The decision, first reported by The Dallas Morning News, says Allen High School home games will be played in neighboring Plano.

Officials with the designer, PBK Architects Inc., and Pogue Construction on Monday said they're committed to correcting the problems.

Superintendent Lance Hindt says an updated interim engineering report from consultants hired by the district found design deficiencies in the elevated concourse and building codes not met.

The 18,000-seat stadium opened in 2012 but was closed in late February after cracks were discovered in the concourse.
