‘Big Crater’ Flattens Tires on a Dozen Cars Along Route 110

Cars stopped along northbound Route 110 with flat tires caused by a large potholeA really big pothole caused big trouble for drivers along Route 110 near Rosslyn tonight.

The left lane of northbound Route 110 approaching Marshall Drive was shut down by Arlington County Police during the evening rush hour after nearly a dozen vehicles became disabled, blocking traffic with flat tires caused by what officers described as a “crater” in the road.

As of 7 p.m. the lane was still blocked and traffic was backed up almost to the Pentagon. VDOT crews were on scene making emergency repairs.

A local TV station was also on scene, interviewing the stranded motorists as they changed tires or awaited roadside service.

Update at 8:30 p.m. — The pothole has been repaired, at least temporarily, and the lane has reopened.
