A ruptured water line Thursday at Lane Community College forced the campus to remain closed close today (Friday).

It’s spring break so the closure doesn't affect classes.

The break in the water main was reported around 4 p.m. Thursday.

Dr. Mary Spilde made the announcement at Wednesday night's Board of Education meeting.
