BIRMINGHAM, AL -

Road work that closed interstate lanes in downtown Birmingham caused many delays Friday.

The Alabama Department of Transportation began emergency concrete bridge deck repairs on a pothole on I-20/59 in the southbound lanes, between Red Mountain Expressway and the Interstate 65 interchange.

Crews were working to fix the pothole from 9:00am until about 5:00pm CT.

During the day, there were many reports of wrecks along I-20/59, leading up to that area of road repairs.

One report had traffic backed up to at least the Birmingham airport area, which is about 3 miles.
