BRIGHTON – Brighton road crews are doing some emergency repairs on a sink hole at U.S. Highway 85 and 144th Avenue near Elmwood Cemetery.

It happened about 2 p.m. The line belongs to the city of Aurora, and the contractor is BTC General Contracting of Henderson. It's a 5-foot water line for the Prairie Waters Project, a water-sharing project so the Aurora can take water from the South Platte River to its borders.

There's no word on what caused the hole to form. City officials said to expect delays throughout the rush hour and to use alternate routes.
