HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s governor says a travel ban on the state’s roads will be lifted at 4 p.m.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Saturday he is still urging residents to stay off the roads if at all possible. He says the recovery effort will be more effective is traffic is limited in town centers and highways.

The governor said 270 National Guard troops are on duty and he expects the storm recovery will take a number of days.

State police have responded to 1,600 calls for service over the last 24 hours. Malloy said that a woman in her 80s was killed Friday night in Prospect when she was struck by a vehicle as she was using a snow blower.
