Beginning at 10 a.m. today, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission started to lift the 45 mph speed limit restriction on the entire Turnpike including the Northeastern Extension. Motorists should still continue to drive with caution and keep alert for changing weather conditions.
Also, drivers should remember to remove all snow and ice from vehicles before hitting the highway and turn on the headlights anytime the windshield wipers are in use.
All speeds are also now restored to the usual posted limits on the following roads:
Speed limits on the above roads had been reduced to 45 miles per hour during yesterday's winter storm.
PennDOT is continuing to treat roads in the area and will continue until roads are clear. Due to the strong winds, motorists should be alert to drifting snow on roads, including the interstate highways.
PennDOT asks motorists to allow plenty of space when driving near plow trucks. Also, for their own safety and the safety of plow operators, motorists should never attempt to pass a truck while it is plowing or spreading winter materials.
