MILFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has issued a statewide travel ban in Connecticut beginning at 5 a.m. Tuesday, as parts of the state prepare for up to 18 inches of snow.

Malloy said people in Connecticut need to make safety a priority and stay home.

In Milford, the Department of Public Works will have about 50 people on the job Monday night through Tuesday night, working 16-hour shifts to clear the roads.

“We have snow throwers, we have plows. we have a trackless machine that can cut up to 36 inches of snow,” DPW Director  Chris Saley said.

Thanks to last Friday’s storm, getting ready for the nor’easter will be a bit easier.

Some salt is still on the roads, so crews won’t have to pre-treat them as much as they typically would.
