Commercial vehicle ban on some highways this weekend

PennDOT and other state officials urge drivers to use caution during the storm, postpone travel if possible, reduce speeds and be aware of the potential for rapidly changing weather and roadway conditions.

The commercial vehicle ban will be in place between noon Saturday and noon Sunday on all interstates and the Turnpike, except for Interstate 95 in southeastern Pennsylvania. This includes I-99, I-80 and I-81. The ban will also be imposed on the U.S. 22 expressway in the Lehigh Valley and the Pennsylvania Route 33 expressway in Northampton and Monroe counties. See a map of restricted roadways.

In addition to vehicle restrictions, speed limits will be restricted to 45 mph on the interstates and expressways as the storm progresses.
