BYU shut down the Marriott Center in the middle of BYU Campus Education Week after a water main burst underneath the northwest side of the Marriott Center’s parking lot.

It’s unknown how long water gushed from cracks in the asphalt, but BYU Police were alerted around 11:10 a.m. and managed to close the water main shortly thereafter.

Education Week classes scheduled in the Marriott Center for Thursday, Aug. 21 were cancelled but repairs were completed later Thursday afternoon so sessions on the final day of Education Week could continue Friday.
