Flooding closes A&M-Commerce hall

COMMERCE — Binnion Hall on the Texas A&M University-Commerce campus will be closed for most of the weekend because of flooding in the basement, according to Lt. Jason Bone, crime information officer with the University Police Department.

A water main burst Friday, which then proceeded to flood the basement of the building located on the northeast corner of the campus. Bone said the decision was made to shut hall down because the water was rising to the electrical outlets.

Currently the building is without water and power, and Bone said it will be closed for the next few days to allow crews to fix the main and allow the water to dry.

“I imagine it will be closed most of the weekend,” he said. “But you neve know with this.”

This is the second time in as many years the hall has closed to a broken water main.

Binnion Hall is the oldest building at the university and is scheduled to be remodeled in the next few years as part of the university’s master plan to rebuild the university.
