Improved roads in Dorchester after Thursday's storm

Posted: Updated:
DORCHESTER, Mass. (WHDH) - Between the rain and snow, the roads turned into a slip and slide. Hydroplaning may be a concern as you head in to work Friday.

Though the rain isn’t as bad as Thursday’s storm. 7’s Nicole Oliverio reported that in Dorchester the roadway is wet but there’s no snow, sleet or ice on the roads. On Thursday, so many cars were sliding off the roads or spinning out.

You could cross over town lines and it would go from rain to wet snowflakes to that big white wall of snow making it difficult to drive.

“They’re slick so everyone should go slow. I've seen everyone be pretty cautious so that's good,” said one driver during Thursday’s storm.

“Bad! Bad! I had to get out and push had to get out and push while my girlfriend was driving, in the middle of the highway,” said another driver.

7’s Nicole Oliverio said Friday morning’s commute shouldn’t be as bad as it was on Thursday. The southeast expressway si moving much quicker than Thursday.

MassDOT said they had over 1500 crews overnight plowing, sanding, and salting to make sure the roads were better on Friday.
