Governor issues travel ban as of 4 p.m.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that there will be a ban on motor

vehicle travel on limited access highways in the State of Connecticut beginning

at 4PM.  These prohibitions do not extend to emergency response and recovery

vehicles, including public safety vehicles, utility vehicles, and vehicles

carrying essential personnel or supplies.

“As the weather gets worse

over the next few hours, we need to keep the roads clear, so that

emergency-related personnel and utility crews can reach those that may need our

help,” Governor Malloy said.  “By traveling in these conditions, you are not

only putting yourself in danger, but you are potentially risking the lives of

first responders, utility workers and other residents. Please be safe.”

The travel ban will remain in effect until further notice.

The

State of Connecticut coordinated the travel ban with Massachusetts and New York.
