LIVERMORE (CBS SF) – All lanes on Interstate Highway 580 are open Thursday after a large pothole closed two westbound lanes Wednesday morning, California Highway Patrol officials said.

At 10:46 p.m. Wednesday, CHP crews reopened the two right westbound lanes that were closed most of the day.

CHP officials first reported the closure at 5 a.m. Wednesday, just east of Greenville Road near Livermore. The closure backed up morning traffic all the way to Tracy.

According to Caltrans spokesman Marcus Wagner, the 4-by-12-foot pothole was caused by rain and an aging roadway.
