Four days after last Sunday's heavy rainfall and subsequent extensive damage to New Hampshire's infrastructure, the condition of state-maintained roadways, including Interstates 93 and 89 and state highways throughout New Hampshire, is improving. Most are now passable, including for log trucks. Check www.newengland511.org frequently for up-to-date state road conditions, as ongoing repairs on several roads are changing passability.

Dozens of local roads in townships, however, are still a mess, and may not be repaired for weeks or even months. The photo accompanying this notice shows Streeter Woods Road in Dorchester, NH; similar conditions can be found on local roads throughout the state. Check with local road agents for conditions, including the condition of local bridges, and be prepared to take detours -- in some cases, long detours.  

Stay safe out there!
