(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont today announced that due to the winter storm that is anticipated to impact Connecticut, he is banning all tandem tractor trailers and empty tractor trailers from traveling on Interstate 84 statewide effective at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, until further notice.

The governor said that he is implementing this travel ban due to the heavy wet snow and high winds that are expected to impact this specific area of Connecticut throughout the day on Tuesday. This is being done in coordination with New York, which has implemented a similar travel ban on tandem tractor trailers and empty tractor trailers on highways in this region.

“During peak periods of this storm, we are expecting to see very strong wind gusts and heavy wet snow in the northern region of the state, particularly along the I-84 corridor,” Governor Lamont said. “This storm is unique for our small state in that some areas are expected to receive a significant impact and in other regions it may be less severe. I encourage everyone to stay alert for weather updates and take caution if you need to travel.”
