Large pothole shuts down part of I-35 in Denton

A large pothole has part of Interstate 35 down to one lane in Denton.

The sizeable hole in the road, which is elevated over Mayhill Road, is in the right lane of northbound traffic. Pieces of debris were falling onto Mayhill from the bridge.

Officials couldn't say if the hole was caused from recent winter weather in North Texas.

Crews were working Wednesday afternoon to make emergency repairs, with the right lane expected to be closed until midnight.

Backups could be seen for miles from Sky4.
