The center lane of Interstate 91 northbound in downtown Springfield was closed for repairs on Wednesday afternoon.
State police closed the lane after exit 6 at about 1 p.m., which was causing major traffic delays on I-91 and on Columbus Avenue in Springfield.
The lane was closed due to a gaping pothole in the elevated highway just before exit 8. MassDOT crews are on scene making repairs.
