PHILADELPHIA -- A large pothole disabled a number of vehicles on the westbound Schuylkill Expressway on Tuesday afternoon.

The pothole opened in the westbound lanes near 30th Street.

An Action News crew passing through the scene saw vehicles forced to pull over, apparently after hitting that pothole.

Some lanes are now closed off as work crews set about the task of making repairs.

Significant traffic delays are reported in the area.
