The southbound lanes of The Pennsylvania Turnpike's Northeast Extension, Interstate 476, have reopened at Lansdale following emergency repairs.

Traffic was stopped so a large pothole could be repaired.

The lanes were reopened shortly before 4:30 p.m.

Turnpike officials said drivers should still keep an eye out for slow-moving traffic.

Earlier int he day, traffic was reduced to one lane for emergency bridge deck repairs.

The view from Chopper 6 HD showed a number of workers on an overpass near mile marker 25 during the repair work.
