PennDOT Lifts All Restrictions in Northcentral, PA


Montoursville, PA – PennDOT has lifted the temporary restrictions on certain vehicles from traveling on Interstate 80 and Interstate 180 in northcentral Pennsylvania. 

Due to the winter storm impacting the region, PennDOT temporarily restricted certain vehicles from using the interstates earlier today to help ensure that the interstates remained open during the most challenging conditions of the winter storm. 

The vehicle restrictions reflected Tier I of the commonwealth's weather event vehicle restriction plan (PDF). PennDOT has also lifted speed and right-lane-only commercial vehicle restrictions on Interstate 80 and Interstate 180 in the region. 

While PennDOT recommends not traveling during winter storms, 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 1,000 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
