Ansonia Police Lt. Patrick Lynch said some roads are snow covered and slippery. As of 1:45 p.m., he said two accidents were reported.

“We've been lucky. They were minor accidents,” Lynch said. “We got a couple of calls of cars being stuck. Public Works has been doing their job keeping up with the snow.”


Danbury DPW director Antonio Iadarola said there are about 46 plow vehicles out on Danbury’s roads Tuesday.

When it comes to snow removal and ice control, Iadarola said, drivers’ prioritize hills, intersections and roads with major traffic. “The goal is to tackle those first before working our way into neighborhoods,” said Iadarola

“The roads are pretty sick. Right now, it’s transitioning from snow to freezing rain, and eventually it’ll become all rain, so they’re getting greasy.”

“There are cars having issues here and there, but the good thing is that not a lot of cars have been out.”

“There’s been considerably less traffic, which has allowed us to do our jobs efficiently.”


We finally have some relief from that flurry of accidents.
