New Hampshire State Police
New Hampshire State Police say Interstate 95 in Portsmouth has reopened after downed power and cable lines were stretched across both sides of the highway for three hours Thursday morning.
New Hampshire state troopers responded to the area of Exit 3 shortly before 8 a.m., according to a statement from police.
A utility pole on the southbound side of the highway had snapped, which caused power and cable lines to fall across both sides of the thoroughfare, according to police.
Both the northbound and southbound sides of 95 were closed to traffic for about three hours, as authorities routed traffic around the downed lines, police said. No one was injured in the incident, according to police.
Police believe the weight of the snow on the lines may have caused damage to the utility pole.
The incident is being investigated.
