Lanes Reopened After Large Pothole Forced Closures On I-30 Near Downtown Dallas

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A large pothole appeared on westbound Interstate-30 near Downtown Dallas Wednesday evening and crews worked through the morning to fix the road, officials said.

Texas Department of Transportation officials said the pothole near I-30 and Carroll Avenue forced them to close the two right lanes in order to perform emergency repairs.

Crews worked through the early morning hours to repair it before rush hour and were able to clear the scene at around 6:30 a.m.

During the repairs, traffic could be seen backed up from Jim Miller Road.

Officials have not said exactly how large the pothole was or if it caused any damage to vehicles.
