Ice Route 1A brings traffic to standstill

HAMPDEN – An icy mist that began falling and freezing at approximately 8:30 a.m. has brought traffic on Route 1A to a halt in the northbound lane. Most of the vehicles, from what I can see from my living room window, are passenger cars with one lone tractor-trailer truck in the line up.

The road surface is glazed, but appears that the freezing mist is beginning to turn to rain as weather forecasters had predicted.
