Major traffic back-ups were reported early Friday afternoon near Pojoaque, where construction work closed several lanes of U.S. 84/285.

Information posted on-line by the state Department of Transportation said the Pojoaque Bridge was closed due to pavement preservation work and that the on-ramp to N.M. 502 westbound would be closed until 2 p.m.

A motorist reported about 1 p.m. that traffic near Cities of Gold had slowed to a bumper-to-bumper crawl in both the northbound and southbound sections of U.S. 84/285.
