PennDOT Reduces Speed Limits on Major Roads in East Central Pennsylvania

Published by:

Due to the winter storm impacting the region, PennDOT has temporarily
reduced
the speed limit on the major roadways in east central Pennsylvania.

PennDOT encourages motorists to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must

head out will see speeds reduced to 45 mph on the following highways:

•                  Interstate 80 in Carbon and Monroe counties;
•                  Interstate 81 in Schuylkill County;
•                  Interstate 380 in Monroe County.

Although PennDOT has crews treating roadways around the clock, 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.

Although PennDOT recommends not traveling during winter storms, motorists
can
check road conditions on more than 2,900 miles of state roads by calling
511 or
visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day,
provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, average traffic speeds
on
urban interstates and access to more than 500 traffic cameras. The 511 site

also provides easy-to-use, color-coded winter road conditions for all
interstates and other routes covered in the 511 reporting network. Regional

Twitter alerts are also available on the 511PA website.

PennDOT also 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.

PennDOT reminds motorists to pack an emergency kit for their vehicles. A
basic
kit should include non-perishable food, water, blanket, small shovel and
warm
clothes. When preparing an emergency kit, motorists should take into
account
special needs of passengers such as baby food, pet supplies or medications
and
pack accordingly.
