Gov. Ned Lamont has issued a ban on all tandem and empty tractor-trailers on I-84 beginning at 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
“During peak periods of this storm, we are expecting to see very strong wind gusts and heavy wet snow in the northern region of the state, particularly along the I-84 corridor,” Gov. Lamont said. “This storm is unique for our small state in that some areas are expected to receive a significant impact and in other regions it may be less severe. I encourage everyone to stay alert for weather updates and take caution if you need to travel.”
A nor'easter is expected to bring heavy, wet snow to parts of Litchfield County overnight and into Tuesday.
The ban will be in effect until further notice.
