NCDOT crews were making an emergency repair Tuesday to the I-85 bridge over the Catawba River.
Just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday crews shut down the southbound two right lanes to repair a large pothole on the bridge.
The closure was causing quite the traffic mess. No ward yet on what may have caused the damage or when repairs will be complete.
NCDOT had said they hoped to have the repairs completed by rush hour.
