Crews treating NH roadways as drivers battle slick conditions

NH1.com

The first measurable snowfall in New Hampshire covered bare ground and trees, and also caused a bit of a problem for morning commuters Monday.

Police responded to several spin-outs in the Concord area as black ice made for slick driving for those on the roads before the sun had a chance to warm the pavement. Back roads with little traffic made for particularly dangerous driving conditions on the first day of the work week.

A crash closed the Spaulding Turnpike southbound near mile marker 9 Monday morning. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation asked drivers to seek an alternate route.

The intersection of I-93 and I-89 saw multiple single and two-car accidents and slowed traffic for a period of time.

New Hampshire Department of Transportation crews were treating roadways Monday morning to battle the slicked-up surfaces that began to see problems as Sunday's precipitation turned to snow Sunday night and fell steadily.

Towns in the north country saw about 3 inches of snow. The southern tier had trace amounts to about an inch on the ground and trees. A stiff and lingering wind will keep temperatures in the 30s Monday.
