I-91 was closed Monday from Windsor to the Massachusetts state line due to icing conditions.

State police closed around 14 miles of Interstate 91, from exit 40 in Windsor to the Massachusetts state line, because of icing on Monday morning, according to state police, but parts of the road have reopened.

Freezing rain is falling as the state is digging out from the Blizzard of 2013, which dumped around 3 feet of snow in some areas of the state.

Freezing rain advisories were in effect until 11 a.m. in Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Fairfield counties.

Gov. Dannel Malloy issued a travel advisory during the blizzard. It was lifted as of 4 p.m. on Saturday, but the governor decided to close several state offices on Monday and asked employers to allow employees to work from home if they had a policy to do so.

No additional information was immediately available.
