The Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) is responding to a large sinkhole on South Murray Boulevard south of Platte Avenue.

CSFD is urging travelers to plan an alternate route if you must head that direction, as the sinkhole can be seen in accompanying photos and videos spewing water onto the road. A truck is also seen stuck in the sinkhole.

The sinkhole is in the northbound lanes of Murray Boulevard near Byron Drive, CSFD said.
