Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell’s ban on all non-emergency and non-essential travel has been extended through 9 am.
New York's orders banning tractor trailers on the highway prompted Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy to also place a travel ban on tractor trailers and tandem trailers on I-84. Malloy lifted the travel ban for tractor trailers and tandem trailers on I-84 at 11 o'clock last night, in coordination with New York State. The Connecticut ban had already been lifted for the remainder of the state’s limited access highways.
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department is reminding drivers that a blacked-out traffic signal works the same as a stop-sign intersection. State law requires all drivers to stop at the intersection and proceed only when other turning and approaching vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians have stopped.
