JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Transportation had an emergency lane closure for the inside lane of Interstate 295 west going northbound Thursday evening. 

FDOT said a bubble in the asphalt formed on the inside lane just south of New Kings Road when a company was digging underneath the lanes.

The pressurized mud product cause the bubble in the asphalt, FDOT said.

FDOT said the northbound, inside lane will be closed until all repairs are completed.
