Highway crews suspected the collapse of a drainage pipe opened the hole that caused massive backups during the Wednesday evening commute.

The hole was about 5 feet wide and 10 feet deep, said Charlie Gischlar, spokesman for the State Highway Administration.

Wednesday evening traffic was blocked from two right lanes on northbound I-95 north of Route 100 in Howard County and near the border with Baltimore County.

The collapse happened about 4:30 p.m., just before the evening commute, Gischlar said.

"The worst time ever," he said. "It's a main feeder route."

He urged drivers to avoid the interstate while crews fill the hole with concrete.
