DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation is working to complete emergency bridge deck repairs on eastbound I-70, which has closed two lanes of the interstate.

AirTracker7 captured video from the repair work between Sheridan and Lowell boulevards showing a large hole in the middle lane of the interstate.

Two lanes will remain closed for hours, with CDOT expecting the emergency repairs to last through much of Thursday.

Drivers should expect delays in the area and consider an alternate route, like I-76, 44th Avenue, 38th Avenue or 6th Avenue.

It’s not clear what caused the damage to the roadway at this time.
