In a recent Facebook post, the Colorado Department of Transportation has announced CO 325 just north of Rifle is closed due to a “large sink hole” in the northbound lane.
The official tweet below originally identified this as a “large sink hole.” It has since been referred to as a “bank failure.”
CO 325 NB: Emergency roadwork at Grass Valley Rd. Large sink hole in the Northbound Lanes between MM 7 and MM 8. Expect delays in area.— CDOT (@ColoradoDOT) July 12, 2019
The road embankment, located between mile marker 7 and 8, collapsed Friday (July 12) destroying part of State Highway 325 near the Rifle Gap reservoir. Reports are estimating the bank failure at 200 feet long by 8 feet wide.
CO 325 is closed to all but local traffic. Motorists are advised to avoid this road and expect delays. Currently, CDOT engineering teams are on-site accessing damage and reconstruction plans.
