Speeds lowered on state highways as snow moves in

CONCORD - Speed limits are at 45 mph for state highways north of Hooksett this morning as the second major snowstorm this week has arrived.

Eric Scott, shift supervisor at the DOT Traffic Management Center, said highway crews were out at 3:30 a.m. treating roads in anticipation of the storm, which is expected to drop anywhere from an inch to 10 inches of snow, and include a wintry mix of rain and sleet.

Traffic was moving smoothly just after 8 a.m. with no major accidents reported, according to Scott.

Temperatures warmed up overnight in Salem to 38 degrees, which helped with the morning rush hour, Scott said. Because of the warmer temperatures, speeds along state roads south of the Hooksett tollbooth were not lowered. Instead, motorists were told a weather advisory was in effect and to be cautious.

"So far, so good," he said.
