Connecticut Travel Ban in Effect as of 4PM

Gov. Malloy has issued a ban on motor vehicle travel until further notice.

 

With the State of Connecticut and the Town of Branford both under a 'state of emergency,' 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. His entire press release follows:

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.

Who is that old lady who is always standing next to him, frowning, but never says anything?

I think that's Lieut. Gov. Nancy Wyman.

Not sure chip. Hope you don't have to go anywhere tonight. And if you do, be safe!
