Travel Ban For Connecticut Lifted, Malloy Says

The lifting of the travel ban is effective immediately.


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.

Closing the interstates and forcing people to drive on back roads where trees are more likely to fall in order to evacuate seems like a bad idea.

It is Malloy. What do you expect. Doing this made it impossible for people who do need to get around to do so.
