LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) - The Governor of Connecticut lifted a travel ban for all major highways in the state during a news conference early Tuesday morning.
Governor Dannel Malloy imposed the ban early Monday afternoon to keep people off the road's and out of harm's way.
"I thought it was smart. We all stayed home in the house," said Dori Groon from Enfield, Connecticut.
"I think it was for everybody's safety, however, I do feel like we got hit mildly by the storm," said Monique Wallace from Longmeadow.
That's exactly why some drivers thought the travel ban, which included both I-91 and I-84 in Connecticut, was unnecessary.
"If you have to get home to your family, you have to get home to your family. You gotta work. You gotta make that decision," said Belinda Wosilis from Windsor Locks.
Mass transit systems across the region scaled back service for the storm Monday, but many began to resume schedules by early Tuesday morning.
