The A14 is now back open over the Orwell Bridge near Ipswich after a pothole forced it to close.
Highways officers were called to repair the hole, which was 1ft across and 6in deep, and described as "safety critical".
Police were at the scene and one lane was closed.
Traffic was heavy with queues back to the Copdock Interchange as a result.
Highways England tweeted: "A14 Eastbound from J56 to J57, a safety critical pothole has been found in lane 1. Lane 1 has been closed for the pothole to be filled."

It comes after a blocked drain caused major problems on the A14 earlier in the week.
