People are beginning to travel again after a historic blizzard blew through Connecticut.

The governor lifted a statewide ban on travel on Saturday afternoon, but is urging people to take necessary precaution when traveling. Safety measures include making carpool plans, cleaning snow off roofs and buildings and making sure drainage areas are clear.

Truck drivers should delay their travel until evening hours so crews can continue to clear the roads.

The governor’s office urges the public to not call 211 for plowing information. 211 does not have information on when streets will be plowed. To find a location of a local warming shelter, you can call 211.

Metro-North:

Metro-North will operate on a regular weekday schedule on Monday between Stamford and Grand Central Terminal. There will be limited peak service from stations between New Haven and Stamford. Regular Danbury Service will resume with the exception of the 6:18 a.m., which is canceled.

The Waterbury branch will remain suspended until further notice. There will be no substitute buses provided to travelers.

Amtrak:

Amtrak will resume normal operations on the Northeast Corridor between New York and Boston on Tuesday, Feb. 12, including the resumption of full Acela Express, Northeast Regional and Springfield Shuttle service following this weekend’s severe winter storm. Amtrak crews have been working around the clock to clear affected track of large amounts of snow, in excess of several feet in some cases.  In addition, crews have removed downed trees and made all necessary repairs to allow for full restoration of service.

Passengers who have paid but choose not to travel due to this service disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel. Some reservations booked online can be modified or canceled on Amtrak.com or by using the free Amtrak mobile app.

Flights are coming and going on schedule. Check with your airline for status of your flights Monday.
