GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) - Heavy delays for westbound travelers on Interstate 70 are expected near the Loveland Ski Area because of a small sinkhole that opened overnight Saturday.

The Colorado Department of Transportation said the 2-foot-wide sinkhole was on the westbound side of the highway on the Loveland Bridge.

The right lane will be closed over the bridge structure while crews repair the road. CDOT said they planned the lane open again by Sunday afternoon.

CDOT blamed a “joint failure” for the sinkhole.
