Highway 67 remains closed while crews try to figure out how to repair a large sinkhole discovered northeast of Cripple Creek Saturday.

According to Colorado State Patrol, it could be several days before the highway is reopened.

The 5-foot-wide, 20-foot-deep sinkhole reportedly opened above a mine shaft underneath road. One option tossed around for repairing it is the possibility of filling it with concrete. Crews will first drill in the area to determine how large the mine shaft is before proceeding with repairs.

Drivers can use County Road 82 as an alternate route through Victor into Cripple Creek. Alternatively, drivers can take Highway 24 to County Road 1.
