EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — Crews across El Paso County are working to reopen several roads that were closed Thursday night due to flood damage.

According to KRDO NewsChannel 13 in Colorado Springs, Vollmer Road in Black Forest is closed between Shoup Road and Burgess Road because of a large sinkhole. Crews are diverting traffic to Herring Road and Burgess.

Crews said the sinkhole was caused by a water main break that is currently being fixed by Cherokee Water.

County Public Works also said Tapadero and Green Mountain Roads will be closed through most of Friday due to a damaged culvert that needs to be replaced.
