TRAFFIC UPDATE: All lanes open after pothole repairs on I-95

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Construction crews cleared the area and lanes are back open on I-95 near 288 after repairs on a massive pothole overnight.

VDOT had to make an emergency pothole repair around 5 p.m. Tuesday, in the middle of the highway during rush hour.

A storm sewer pipe collapsed under the pavement. The pipe separated from its joint, causing the pothole.

Crews finished repairs and reopened the road around 7 a.m. Wednesday.
