HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Transportation officials in New Hampshire continue to deal with the effects of winter storms on roadways.

New Hampshire Department of Transportation civil engineer Jim Hewitt tells the Portsmouth Herald a 3-foot-wide sinkhole was discovered on Route 1A in Hampton this week. The sinkhole is near a catch basin. Hewitt says the road collapsed on itself because of heavy flooding that caused soil to move.

Public safety officials say there were multiple sinkholes along Hampton Beach following nor’easters in March. DOT spokesman William Boynton says crews will monitor drainage sites along Route 1A in the coming weeks.

State Parks spokeswoman Amy Bassett says crews are “making great progress” with the storm cleanup of Hampton Beach.
