PITTSBURG -- One lane of westbound Highway 4 was closed for several hours Wednesday while crews fixed a pothole that opened up during the recent rainstorms.

The right lane was closed east of the Loveridge Road overpass just after 10:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol, and remained closed until the late afternoon.
