Spring Storm Brings School Closings, Delays

What may be winter’s last stand Monday morning brings a messy morning commute and prompts area public schools and others to cancel or delay the start of classes today.

Road crews in Haverhill were salting snow-coated streets in the overnight hours before the storm gained intensity around 5 a.m. Plows were out on the streets by 6 a.m., according to a Haverhill Highway department dispatcher. While slick roads were reported in outlying areas, crews are reported to be keeping up with conditions through the morning commute.
