LANCASTER –– Drivers should avoid westbound Interstate 20 from Lancaster to Houston School Roads during the Wednesday evening rush hour.

The Texas Department of Transportation said a hole in the bridge needed repairs, and the two right lanes were closed to traffic leading to a big backup.

Chunks of concrete could be seen on the pavement of Houston School Road under the overpass.

Temporary repairs were completed Wednesday night, but TxDOT said it will need to detour traffic again at 9 a.m. Thursday for "additional repairs."
