Malloy: Don’t Want to Open I-95 Until Storm Abates

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said today he does not want to lift the travel ban on I-95 and other state roads until the storm abates in eastern Connecticut.

He told WCBS Newsradio 880 in New York that it makes no sense to allow travel on state roads in Fairfield County only to have traffic back up in New Haven and eastern Connecticut, which is being harder hit by the storm than western Connecticut.

He did not give an estimate when state roads will reopen.

Malloy: Resumption of Rail Service Under Discussion

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Metro-North and Amtrak will discuss restoration of service this morning.

Earlier, MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast said MTA rail service will resume on a Sunday schedule by noon.

Metro-North later said this referred to New York State.

Malloy said Metro-North had to inspect the catenary system in Connecticut before resuming service.
