Governor lifts driving ban in some areas, but not Milford

Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced this morning that he has adjusted the state’s travel ban.  As of 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 27,  the ban has been lifted for local roads and local travel in Fairfield and Litchfield counties.  The ban remains in place for the rest of the state, including Milford, until further notice.

“We are working to get residents back on the road as soon as possible,” Governor Malloy said.  “Because of lighter-than-expected snowfall in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties, but sustained, heavy snowfall in eastern Connecticut, we’re adjusting the ban as conditions warrant.  Residents in Fairfield and Litchfield counties may travel locally if necessary, but those in the rest of the state – especially in eastern Connecticut – are encouraged to remain in their homes.”
