Travel Ban For Connecticut Lifted, Malloy Says


The travel bans Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy ordered in the state yesterday are now lifted, effective immediately, according to a press release from the governor's office.

On Monday, facing severe weather from Hurricane Sandy, Governor Malloy ordered a truck ban, followed by the closure of the state’s limited access highways to non-emergency vehicles.

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

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