A storm is wreaking havoc on the Northeast, causing Rhode Island and Massachusetts to institute tractor-trailer bans on highways Tuesday, March 13.
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation placed a travel ban on tractor-trailers on all state highways from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday. Gov. Gina Raimondo announced the truck ban late Monday night on Twitter.
Several tractor trailer accidents in Massachusetts Tuesday morning prompted the Massachusetts State Police to issue a truck ban on the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) from the New York state line to exit 14, just west of Boston. There is no timetable on when the restriction will be lifted.
