Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Saturday that the traffic ban would expire at 4 p.m., however he is still encouraging Connecticut residents to stay off the roads.
That includes "all roads, including limited access highways," according to a press release.
"While we are lifting the ban on travel this afternoon at 4PM, I still want to urge residents to stay off the roads if at all possible," Malloy said in the release. "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."
Some Avon businesses are open as of 4:45 p.m. As of late afternoon, Avon Master Pizza announced that it has reopened after the storm. Customers can reach the pizza restaurant at 860-674-9398.
The Avon Big Y has also been since 11 a.m. Saturday and will reopen Sunday at 7 a.m.
