Freezing Rain Causes Treacherous Roadways, Multiple Accidents

The state’s Department of Transportation warned about slippery conditions on roadways from Manchester to Plymouth Sunday as freezing rain hit cold pavement. “Incidents are happening all over the place,” said Bill Boynton with NHDOT.  

By afternoon, a pileup on I-93 blocked traffic in both directions near I-89.

Boynton's recommendation? Watch football.

"As soon as you start using salt, the rain dissolves it," he said. That made pre-treatment impossible Sunday morning, as freezing rain moved in across the state.  

Trucks salted roads repeatedly throughout the day.
