Gov. Malloy Lifts Storm Travel Ban In Fairfield County

FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy lifted the travel bans Tuesday that he had ordered in the state Monday, effective immediately.

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

“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.

That included I-95, I-84, the Merritt Parkway and I-91.
