HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has lifted the travel ban for Connecticut roads as conditions return to normal after a widespread storm pounded southern New England.

Malloy said at a news conference Tuesday the ban will end at 2 p.m. as state highway crews clear snow and intense weather conditions ease. The ban was imposed at 9 p.m. Monday.

The governor said Connecticut is “through the worst of the storm.” However, he said the highways are passable, but perhaps not at typical highway speeds.

State bus service is set to resume Wednesday morning.

Malloy said 15 accidents were reported since Monday, demonstrating that motorists heeded warnings and avoided the roads.

He also ordered state employees back to work Wednesday, though nonessential third-shift workers should not report to work Tuesday.
