HARTFORD - The statewide travel ban enforced by Gov. Dannel Malloy has been lifted as of 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The ban, enacted as a public safety precaution during the winter storm, had been in place since Friday. The governor says he decided to lift the ban because neighboring states were allowing travel and he did not want to disrupt major commercial traffic.

Meanwhile, Malloy has also filed a request with President Barack Obama for an emergency declaration.
