Dozens of drivers found themselves in need of new tires after driving over a pothole in the northbound lanes of Sheridan Boulevard at West 33rd Avenue.

Denver7 started receiving calls about the pothole around 7 p.m. Monday.

"We’re just cruising along and you start seeing people kind of swerve a little bit and there’s a hole, probably about the size of a spare tire in the road and we hit it and it took our both tires and like took a chunk out of both rims have big dents in them," said John Milliron.

There was a line of vehicles pulled over with their hazards on when our crew arrived.

An officer at the scene say up to 30 vehicles were damaged.

"Driving along at the speed limit and hit a giant pothole which blew out my right front tires, a hole about the size of a baseball," another driver told Denver7.  “I’ve hit potholes but never one this big."

A Denver Public Works spokesperson told Denver7's Liz Gelardi they will have a crew check it out.

It was filled shortly before 10 p.m.

It typically takes 24-72 hours to fill a pothole -- most are filled within 48 hours weather permitting, the spokesperson said.

In Denver you can call 311 to report potholes.
