ODOT crews found a two foot hole in the southbound lane of the Hominy Creek Bridge on Highway 11 in Tulsa County Monday morning. 

A supervisor told FOX23 crews were looking for potholes, and they expected to find problems caused by last week's winter storm, and the salt and sand used on the roads.

Crews found the hole around 8:30AM, and worked to patch the hole with concrete. They had a crew of eight working on the hole for about two hours. 

Once they filled the hole with concrete, six crew members left the scene, to find other holes in need of repair.  They kept two flagmen on the bridge, directing all traffic into the northbound lane, until the concrete sets up and hardens. 

Both lanes reopened around 3:30 p.m. 

ODOT Spokesperson Kenna Carmon said the Highway 11 Hominy Creek Bridge was built in 1940 and is scheduled for replacement in 2017.
