    All lanes of northbound Interstate 35E have been reopened in Denton after crews closed parts of the freeway to repair a pothole in the pavement.

    The hole was located in the emergency lane on the Mayhill Road overpass and appears to be about 5-feet long and 3-feet wide.

    One lane of I-35E and Mayhill Road underneath the highway were closed for repairs beginning at about 1 p.m. Wednesday. All lanes were reopened at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday. 

    Due to the lane closure Wednesday, traffic backed up several miles into Corinth.
