In addition, he has issued a travel advisory for all other vehicles during this time and is urging motorists to stay off the roads during the peak periods of the storm.

“During the peak periods of the storm, we are anticipating severe white-out conditions that will make travel very difficult, and that is why are implementing a ban on tractor-trailers during these hours,” Governor Lamont said. “We are strongly urging motorists to stay home during the storm unless absolutely critical.”
