Malloy urges carpooling Monday

From Gov. Dannel Malloy:

Due to road conditions and limited parking availability, residents should begin making plans to carpool to work Monday morning, particularly with state employees.

Other  requests from the governor:

Clean snow off the roofs of buildings, especially if they are flat tops. Also, make sure drainage areas are clear. With precipitation predicted for Monday, this is an especially important issue to address today.

Truckers are urged to delay travel until the evening hours, if at all possible, so that crews can continue road clearance efforts.

Calling 2-1-1 should be used to find locations of shelters and warming stations only. 2-1-1 does not have information on when streets will be plowed. Please do not call 2-1-1 for plowing information.

Residents should please remember that our state and city public works personnel are working very hard to get our roads clear. This was a historic storm, and the recovery effort is going to take some time
