Speed Limits Restored on Roadways in the Region

PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restrictions that were in place on roadways in the north central Pennsylvania region.

Due to the winter storm impacting the region, speed limits were reduced Monday night to 45 mph on Interstate 80, Interstate 180 and Route 15 in the region. All speeds are restored to their usual posted limits in north central Pennsylvania.

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 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.
