Malloy signed the order just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Gov. Malloy order: because of the extreme nature of the snowstorm currently affecting the state of Connecticut and developing issues at the New York State border, tractor trailers & tandem trailers are banned from travel on all limited access highways until further notice @WTNH pic.twitter.com/cgittT9lXc

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has banned tractor-trailers, tandem trailers, buses, box trucks and other high-profile vehicles on various highways. The list includes Interstates 84 and 95, which both lead into Connecticut. Malloy says Cuomo’s decision was not part of a “coordinated call.”
Connecticut is expected to receive anywhere from 4 inches to 16 inches of snow, with the northwestern part of the state getting the most.
