HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut officials say they are prepared for a major storm that’s expected to dump 1 to 2 feet of snow.
The state Department of Transportation says it has more than 800 state and contractor plow trucks ready and was pretreating bridges and roads Thursday with a salt-brine solution.
Judd Everhart, a DOT spokesman, says the timing of the storm on a Friday night into Saturday will help because there will be fewer cars on the road but cautioned roads will be in very poor condition for at least 24 hours and those not needing to travel should stay off them.
Connecticut Light & Power says heavy wet snow and high winds could cause power outages. CL&P says employees and resources are being sent across the state so they can be deployed quickly.
