PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restrictions that were in place on roadways in the region.
Due to the winter storm impacting the region, speed limits were reduced yesterday to 45 mph on Interstate 80 and Interstate 180. All speeds are restored to their usual posted limits.
Motorists should continue to drive with caution due to freezing conditions that continue to exist throughout the region.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 825 traffic cameras.
511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
