Denver - The Colorado Department of Transportation closed one eastbound lane of I-70 near Idaho Springs after a large sinkhole opened up Thursday afternoon.
Crews have been working to repair the hole since 1 p.m. CDOT says travelers should expect long delays through the Idaho Springs area.
A possible alternate route: Highway 9 to U.S. Highway 285. It's not clear how long the lane will be closed.
