I-25 sinkhole repair cost $1.03 million

DENVER (AP) ” The cost to the state for repairing a a 40-foot wide sinkhole on Interstate 25 north of downtown last month totaled $1.03 million.

The 16-foot deep sinkhole opened up just before evening rush hour Feb. 7 when a 66-inch Denver Water pipeline that runs beneath the highway burst. The Colorado Department of Transportation might seek reimbursement from Denver Water.

Money for the repair came from CDOT’s $40 million contingency fund.

According the report released Thursday, most of the money ” $833,697 ” went to Jalicso International, which had been working north of the site and was quickly mobilized for emergency repairs.
