Official: New Canaan Snow Cleanup Will Take Some Time

NEW CANAAN, Conn. — The following is a message from New Canaan Emergency Management Director Mike Handler:

We currently have no reported power outages in town.  Our highway crews are out working to make roadways passable, but with 20-plus inches of snow accumulation, this is not going to be an easy or quick task. 

Gov. Dan Malloy has extended the mandated driving ban to include all roadways until we are able to remove the snow. Please remember that it is against the town code to push snow from private driveways out into the roadways — please have the snow pushed in toward your property. This will prevent our roads from becoming blocked after our crews have cleared them.

Please continue to call CL&P with any power outages at 800-286-2000. 

At this time the Emergency Operations Center is moving to monitoring status. We are thankful that New Canaan was spared any significant damage, and I am unaware of any town ordinance limiting the height of your snowmen, so enjoy your weekend in the snow and stay safe.
