(Harrisburg) -- PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restrictions that have been in place on major roadways in south central Pennsylvania since 12:30 a.m. yesterday due to the winter storm that hit 6 a.m.

The following roads in south central Pennsylvania were affected by the earlier speed restrictions:

· Interstate 81 in Franklin, Cumberland, Dauphin and Lebanon counties
· Interstate 78 in Lebanon County
· Interstate 83 in York, Cumberland and Dauphin counties
· Interstate 283 in Dauphin County
· PA 283 in Dauphin and Lancaster counties
· US 22/322 in Dauphin County and Perry counties
· PA 581 in Cumberland County
· US 11 in Franklin and Cumberland counties
· US 15 in Adams, York and Cumberland counties
· US 11/15 in Cumberland and Perry County counties
· US 30 in York and Lancaster Counties
· US 222 in Lancaster County, from US 30 to Berks County line

Because the winter storm is expected to leave Pennsylvania by 4 a.m. today, the Pa. Turnpike Commission has announced that it expects to lift the 45 mph speed limit and the bans on certain commercial and non-commercials trailers on all remaining sections of the Turnpike at 6 a.m. today.
