Gov. Dannel Malloy has lifted the travel bans that he ordered in the state yesterday, effective immediately.

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

“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.

The governor credits the ban with preventing loss of life or major accidents from occurring.

At 11 a.m. on Monday, trucks were prohibited from operating on limited access highways. 

At 1 p.m., on Monday, state highways were closed to all non-emergency related vehicles. 

The ban has now been lifted.
