Road conditions quickly deteriorated on Tuesday in the New Haven area (WFSB)


Winter Storm Ferris came down at a pretty good clip in the New Haven area on Tuesday.

It didn’t take long for road conditions to deteriorate in southern CT.

Early Tuesday morning, the roads were just wet and snow was only sticking to the grass. But around 10:30 a.m., roads became snow covered and visibility started to deteriorate.

“Roads are pretty garbage right now. We’ve seen a lot of the state plow trucks and stuff out and a lot of private guys out, but it’s coming down so fast you can’t do nothing,” said Clifford Cole of Plymouth.

The best advice for Tuesday was to stay off the roads if you can. If not, take it slow and allow for plenty of time.

For some though, like plow truck driver Harry Velazquez, this weather equals work.

“I’ll try to handle it as much as I can until we get it all done and it slows down, go home for a while and then come back out and do it all over again," he said.
