All lanes open on I-10 east near Sunland open after emergency pothole repair

Potholes on I-10 eastbound near Sunland Park Drive cause hazard and major delays for drivers.

Potholes on I-10 eastbound just past Sunland Park Drive caused multiple tire blowouts early Monday morning.

TxDOT spokeswoman, Lauren Macias-Cervantes, told KFOX14 the potholes were in between the middle and right hand lane forcing crews to shutdown those lanes and make repairs. All lanes are now open after close to three hours of delays in the area.

TxDOT cameras showed three cars pulled over to the right shoulder just past the Paisano Drive on ramp after experiencing tire blowouts around 7:00 a.m.

The El Paso Police Department was on scene as TxDOT's towing program assisted in removing two of the three vehicles, the third was able to put on a spare tire.

Police blocked off the middle and right hand lanes for close to three hours until the potholes were repaired.

Traffic back up extended to Artcraft Road.

TxDOT crews arrived on scene to begin repairs around 8:00 a.m.
