BATON ROUGE - Failed attempts to patch up a pothole overnight led to an hours-long closure of multiple lanes on I-10 Thursday morning.

The incident was reported before 6 a.m. at College Drive. DOTD closed the middle and right lanes throughout the morning to patch the hole with concrete. The lanes were eventually opened just after noon.

A statement from the department said the roadway was initially patched overnight, but the concrete did not settle in time for morning traffic.

Though the lanes have reopened, DOTD said driver can expect more than a dozen miles of delays.
