(NECN) - As about a quarter to a half inch of ice falls on top of several layers of snow, Connecticut governor Dan Malloy says they are always worried about drivers on the roads.
He says non-essential state employees don't have to be at work until 10:30 a.m. as state DOT crews work to create passable conditions on the highways. Malloy is urging drivers to watch their speeds.
"Just because you can go fast, doesn't mean you should," he said.
The state is also worried about freezing rain and ice accumulating on top of roofs, and how much rain could contribute to problems weighing down the tops of buildings.
