HARTFORD - Gov. Dannel Malloy ordered a ban on motor vehicle travel on limited access highways, starting at 4 p.m. Friday.

The ban includes I-95 and the Merritt Parkway, and it will remain in effect until further notice.

"As the weather gets worse over the next few hours, we need to keep the roads clear, so that emergency-related personnel and utility crews can reach those that may need our help," Malloy said in a release.

"By traveling in these conditions, you are not only putting yourself in danger, but you are potentially risking the lives of first responders, utility workers and other residents. Please be safe."
