ALLEN, Texas (AP) The Texas Board of Professional Engineers is investigating whether laws or rules were broken over flaws that closed a $60 million high school football stadium.

The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/1mr38fE ) reported Saturday that the state's engineering board is reviewing work at the Allen Independent School District venue.

District officials this month blamed design flaws at Eagle Stadium, which opened in 2012 but closed this year when cracks were discovered. Experts later cited structural problems in the stadium about 30 miles north of Dallas.

Officials from PBK, the Houston-based firm that designed the stadium, say they are cooperating with the board review. The company has been working on repairs.

School authorities declined comment on the review by the board that investigates issues, can issue fines and can suspend or revoke licenses.
