From earlier tonight:

A Sink hole was discovered by United Power on SH 72 at Mile marker 22 “by the S curve right before the address of 800 Hwy 72. This is after the Wondervue restaurant going West.”

Please use extreme caution as it has not yet been repaired. A cone has been placed near the spot.

Additionally, Coal Creek Canyon Fire Department were on scene directing traffic since this is on a the blind corner.

From later:

The construction team has filled the sink hole with concrete, but it will need to dry until morning. In the meantime, one lane of traffic is being flagged through at a time. Please be aware that it will be slow going this evening.

Please be aware that CDOT are checking the culvert along State Highway 72 but that these types of sink holes can occur, especially with the large amount of heavy construction traffic. Please keep cautious as you travel.
