Manchester Police/Fire: Police clear debris from Route 128

Manchester Police/Fire

MANCHESTER — Police took on cleanup duties along Route 128 Monday morning after a few stray items were found in the roadway.

Officers first found a tarp in the southbound lanes of Route 128 just after 11 a.m., and officers retrieved it.

Then, less than an hour later, police said that a ladder was reportedly left in the southbound lanes at 11:38 a.m. In that instance, officers found that someone had moved the debris to the side of the road.

Police said a dead seal washed up on Lobster Cove off Masconomo Street Monday around 1:35 p.m. The New England Aquarium was notified and responded to the scene.
