BERTHOUD, Colo. — A southbound lane of Interstate 25 in Larimer County was closed for most of Friday to do emergency repairs to eroded ground under the interstate, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) said.
The lane reopened about 5 p.m. and no further hazard exists, CDOT said.
A photo posted by CDOT on social media showed a section of the slope washed out under the interstate between Johnstown and Berthoud. Rain totals in the Berthoud area showed between 1.5 and 2 inches of rain over the past 24 hours.
The work was between Johnstown and Berthoud, with one southbound lane closed between Larimer County Road 16 and Colorado 56, CDOT said on social media.
CDOT warned drivers to expect major delays and to avoid the area if possible.
