HOUSTON—A massive pothole forced crews to shut down four lanes of the southbound side of 59 near the West Loop for around five hours Monday.

Traffic was backed up into downtown as workers made the emergency pavement repair.

Lanes were closed at 11:11 a.m., according to Houston Transtar, and reopened just after 4 p.m.
