GOV. MALLOY ORDERS ROAD CLOSURES
No Trucks Allowed into State After 11AM; Complete Road Closure at 1PM
 
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today ordered road closures for all state highways.  The closures will be implemented in two phases.  At 11:00 A.M., trucks will be prohibited from operating on limited access highways.  At 1:00 P.M., state highways will be closed to all non-emergency related vehicles. 
 
“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.”
