NEW: Chafee Shutting Down Highway Traffic

Friday, February 08, 2013

 

Following similar moves in Massachusetts and Connecticut, Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee has just banned traffic on a number of the state’s highways during the peak hours of today’s snowstorm.

Chafee has just released an order that, as of 5 p.m., public traffic will be prohibited on Routes 24, 95, 146, 192 and 295.

There are exceptions, however, as travel will be permitted for public safety vehicles and workers, public works vehicles and workers, government officials on official business, utility company vehicles and workers, health care workers who travel to and from work in order to provide essential health services and members of the news media.

In addition, necessary travel to maintain and deliver items such as energy and fuel supplies to the private sector and travel to support business operations that provide “critical services” to the public will also be allowed.
