SANFORD, N.C. (WTVD) -- Safety concerns have led Lee County High School officials to close stadium seating at the school's football stadium.
During a routine annual inspection, several cracks were discovered in the concrete supports underneath the bleachers.
As a result, the stadium seating on both sides of the field has been closed while school leaders consult with a structural engineer.
During a flyover by Chopper 11 on Tuesday, no barriers were seen around the bleachers to keep people away from them.
Lee County has a home football game on Friday. There is no word yet whether the game will be played at another location.
