ERIE, Colo. (CBS4) – Erie Parkway was closed after a sinkhole opened up between County Roads 5 and 7. The closure lasted until late Thursday morning.
The sinkhole was caused by a collapsed pipe, according to the Erie Public Works Department. Officials say the 5-foot diameter pipe had become rusted and brittle before giving way.
Garney Construction will install two sections of new pipe along with new headwalls before backfilling the hole. The city said a paving contractor will then patch up the road.
