Due to extreme winter road conditions, PennDOT is temporarily reducing the speed limit on Interstate 80 to 45 miles per hour in north central Pennsylvania. Motorists should drive with caution.
Although PennDOT crews have been treating roadways, the department’s primary goal is to keep roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow. PennDOT will continue to treat roadways throughout the storm until precipitation stops and roads are clear.
PennDOT asks motorists to give plow trucks plenty of room to operate. Increase traveling distance when following plow trucks and do not attempt to pass them.
