FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — The statewide travel ban instituted Friday because of the winter storm will be lifted at 4 p.m. Saturday, Gov. Dannel Malloy announced.  This will apply to all roads, including limited access highways.

"While we are lifting the ban on travel this afternoon at 4 p.m., I still want to urge residents to stay off the roads if at all possible," Malloy said in a statement. "Crews are out clearing roadways as we speak, but the fact is we are going to feel the impact of this storm for some time.

"The longer we can keep traffic out of town centers and off of our highways, the more effective our recovery effort will be."
