Malloy orders highways to close

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today ordered road closures for all state highways.  The closures will be implemented in two phases.

At 11 a.m., trucks will be prohibited from operating on limited access highways.  At 1 p.m., state highways will be closed to all non-emergency related vehicles.

The governor said in a press release, “Residents need to take this storm very seriously.  Beginning in the next several hours, wind gusts will begin to exceed 50 m.p.h., making traveling along our roads – especially wooded areas like the Merritt Parkway – very dangerous.  We’re doing this in two phases, so that trucks will first be prohibited and then all non-emergency vehicles.  If you’re in a non-evacuation area, stay home.”
