Crews say Eagle Ranch Road in Paradise Hills could remain closed for days due to extensive damage caused by a water main break.

The break created a large sinkhole early Wednesday.

David Morris with the Water Utility Authority said the problem was first reported around 4:30 a.m.

While crews were able to isolate the leak and restore service to homes in the area around 8:15 a.m., the damage to the road will keep Eagle Ranch closed from Irving to Agate Hills Road for the next few days.
