GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York arena that was closed after part of a wall collapsed earlier this week is expected to reopen soon.

The Glens Falls Civic Center has been closed since Wednesday, when brick masonry on the back outside wall collapsed because of the buildup of ice and snow.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (https://bit.ly/1zUjSDc ) that city officials say a structural engineer has conducted an inspection and found no evidence of structural issues.

Crews are removing snow from the roof so temporary repairs on the building can be made.

Officials say they expect the 36-year-old arena to reopen in time for Tuesday’s home game for the Adirondack Flames of the American Hockey League.

Local high school basketball playoff games that were scheduled at the arena this week were moved to other locations.
