UPDATE: I-75 South reopens; pothole repaired

A pothole that blocked two lanes of traffic on I-75 South in Clayton County was fixed before the Tuesday morning rush hour, officials said.

The lanes reopened about 6 a.m., 21 hours after crews first arrived on the scene just south of I-285, Georgia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Natalie Dale said.

Repair work on Monday slowed traffic near Forest Parkway and led to delays.
