Some weather-related restrictions lifted on the Turnpike

The PA Turnpike lifted SOME truck/trailer and speed-limit restrictions on sections of the Turnpike system in western Pennsylvania at 4:30 p.m.:

  • The truck/trailer ban was lifted only on the east-west mainline (I-76 and I-70/76) from the Ohio line east to the Breezewood Exit (No. 161).
  • The 45 mph speed-limit restriction was lifted only on the east-west mainline (I-76) from the Ohio line east to the New Stanton Exit (No. 75).

Until further notice, PennDOT says truck/trailer and speed restrictions remain in place on other sections of the PA Turnpike east of the above-noted areas. Snowfall is expected to continue in these regions through this evening.
