With another significant snow event of the 2013-14 winter on its way, the Connecticut State Police is working to ensure safety on all highways and roads across the state. State Troopers will be in place on patrol on roads and highways, with any additional required Troopers on call for immediate response, according to the State Police. Specialty emergency State Police vehicles will be deployed and available across Connecticut in the event they are required for any emergency.
A snowstorm that is expected to drop up to 10 inches of powder will likely lead to slippery and treacherous roadways in Connecticut. Trucks and passenger cars may become disabled and unable to move, blocking lanes of the road and preventing DOT trucks from treating and plowing the highways.
