SAN BENITO, Texas (ValleyCentral) — San Benito Consolidated Independent School District announced its immediate closure of the old Greyhound Stadium.

The district told ValleyCentral Friday afternoon the stadium, located at the corner of North Bonham and East Hicks streets, is an unsafe zone.

“A licensed engineer’s visual observation and assessment on the structural integrity of the existing stadium seating revealed an issue of excess steel corrosion.  This is of utmost concern and led to the stadium’s closure.  Until district trustees and administrators have had the opportunity to review and discuss the structural integrity of the stadium as well as safety issues, the stadium will remain closed as a precautionary measure,” said in the statement.

A number of no trespassing signs have been posted along the fence.

“Please know that Greyhound [Stadium] is now a NO TRESPASSING zone,” the district added.

The district asks the community to avoid the area due to safety concerns.
