The intersection of E. 9th Avenue and Eudora Street will remain closed until at least next week as crews continue repairing a massive hole that opened up at the intersection.

The area will remain closed one block in each direction from the intersection.

The hole opened at the intersection when a 30-inch cast iron broke underground Thursday. Denver Water crews responded at around 3 a.m. and said there were no injuries. No customers had water service disruptions either, including those near Rose Medical Center.

A spokesperson for the utility provider said it's still unclear what caused the line to break but added that the depth of where the buried line was "makes it less susceptible to temperature-related breaks."
