Repairing Allen Eagle Stadium has turned into an expensive project, but Ben Pogue, president and CEO of Pogue Construction, insists taxpayers will not be picking up the bill

According to Pogue, all of the companies involved in the stadium's construction have insurance policies that will cover the cost of repairs. 

“Once this is fixed and completed, Allen ISD and the taxpayers will still have a magnificent stadium they can be proud of,” Pogue said. “There will be no financial burden for Allen ISD or taxpayers.”

After this week's report showed the stadium's cracking may have been a flaw in design, officials at PBK, the architecture firm that designed the stadium, will have another forensics report done next week. 

PBK's statement to The Dallas Morning News states that the firm will pay for repairs if these findings point to a design flaw on the firm's part. 

The stadium, which cost $60 million and is less than 2 years old, may undergo partial demolition to fix the cracking.
