Travel Ban Lifted in Connecticut

Governor asks residents to use caution on state highways as well as local roads.

The closure of the state's limited access highways to all non-emergency vehicles has been lifted, effective immediately.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Tuesday at 8 a.m. that Connecticut's highways were open but asked people to use caution on both state and local roads.

“Use your heads when it comes to driving.  If a road appears impassable because of water, downed wires, fallen trees or other debris, do not attempt to drive through it,” Malloy said.

All trucks were banned from the state's limited access highways on Monday at 11 a.m. and all non-emergency traffic by 1 p.m.

The Governor will have additional updated information at his 8:30 a.m. news briefing from the State Emergency Operations Center on Tuesday morning.
