Denver Water is working to repair a water main break that created a giant hole in the street.

The hole opened up on East Cornell Avenue near South Gilpin Street.

The hole is 15-20 feet across, according to Denver7 Photojournalist Daryl Orr.

"Half the road is missing," Orr said.

Two homes do not have water.

Crews told Orr the cold weather did not cause the break, the pipe was just old.
