HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says state agencies will be open for business Wednesday, crediting his travel ban with helping crews remove snow on state roads.
The Democrat says Tuesday’s ban, which ran from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., also helped keep accidents to a minimum. He says there were only 38 accidents, which he called “a big success.” Malloy is thanking most Connecticut residents for adhering to the ban, noting only a few tickets were issued.
While the ban has been lifted, Malloy is urging residents to stay off the roads.
Snow totals from Tuesday’s nor’easter range from about two to 18 inches.
Malloy says Metro-North Railroad will resume service from 6 p.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday night. He says there will be a “somewhat limited schedule” on Wednesday.
