Manitou Avenue is closed in both directions at the Ruxton Avenue roundabout due to a sinkhole, according to CDOT. 

The westbound lanes were closed around 12:30 p.m. Monday, and the road was closed in both directions later that afternoon. 

CDOT engineers are working to determine the next steps.

A marked detour is in place during the closure. There’s no word on when the road will reopen.
