SALT LAKE CITY — Crews with the Utah Department of Transportation on Monday finished emergency work repairing a pothole in a bridge.

The hole surfaced on the I-15 northbound bridge deck over 800 South and forced the closure of three lanes overnight.

UDOT began opening lanes as planned around 6 a.m., and all lanes reopened shortly after that.

A Utah Highway Patrol trooper discovered the three-foot pothole at approximately 7 a.m. Sunday. The hole had punctured completely through the bridge, officials said.

UDOT spokesman John Gleason said the extreme winter weather accelerated the issue. Luckily the hole was discovered quickly, and no vehicles were damaged.
