LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana State Police say southbound traffic on Interstate 65 south of Lafayette has backed up for miles for emergency repairs to a hole on a bridge.

Indiana Department of Transportation spokeswoman Debbie Calder says a small section of a recent repair started to open Wednesday, creating a pothole about 2-foot square.

The hole opened up in the right lane of the approach to the Lauramie Creek Bridge near the 164 mile marker, about four miles south of the State Road 38.

The affected area is about 8 miles south of the Wildcat Creek Bridge on I-65 where northbound lanes were closed for weeks this summer after support piers began moving.
