I-95 was Completely Shut Down in Portsmouth Today Due to Wires Across Roadway
Earlier this morning, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation reported all lanes, both north and southbound were closed to ALL traffic, due to wires across the roadway.
Apparently, a utility pole snapped under the weight of the snow and caused the wires to come down across the roadway.
Traffic was diverted to Route101, Route 33, Rt 1 and the Spaulding Turnpike for approximately two-and-a-half hours.
Officials re-opened both the north and southbound lanes shortly before 10:30 this morning.
There are numerous reports throughout the Granite State of trees, wires and utility poles down. Please use extra caution if you're out and about today.
