Sherwood Island State Park Opened for Truckers

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection today opened parking lots at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport as a truck refuge area where out-of-state truckers can wait out the storm, according to the Motor Transport Association of Connecticut.

Michael J. Riley, the president of the association which represents 800 trucking companies in the state, said its members were advised to get off the roads by late afternoon and that Sherwood Island and Hammonasset State Park in Madison were available for parking.

“We appreciate that the governor gave ample warning that he had decided to impose the traffic ban,” he said.

“As a result, we have enough time to make today’s deliveries and cope with the logistical problems which will present themselves through the rest of the week.”

Marpe Issues Storm Statement

Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe today issued the following statement on the storm:

A blizzard warning is in effect throughout Connecticut and is anticipated to heavily impact the area tonight through Tuesday. Safety is the utmost priority. If there is a power outage, repairs will be made when it is safe to do so. At the height of the storm, due to high winds and potential for impassable roads, CL&P will not send linemen to repair downed wires until it is safe to do so. 

There are several factors that make this storm dangerous:

- Expected snow accumulations of 18-24 inches will make driving extremely dangerous, including possible whiteout conditions, tonight and into early Wednesday morning. Governor Malloy has announced that a travel ban for all roads is in effect beginning at 9 p.m.
