PENNDOT RESTORES SPEED LIMITS!

PennDOT has lifted the speed limit and right-lane-only commercial vehicle restrictions that were in place on several roadways in the region. 

Due to the winter storm impacting the region, speed limits were reduced yesterday to 45 mph on:

  • Interstate 99 in Bedford and Blair Counties
  • Route 22 4-lane in Blair and Cambria
  • Route 219 4-lane in Cambria and Somerset Counties

All speeds are restored to their usual posted limits.

PennDOT is continuing to treat roadways in the area and will continue until roads are clear.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 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.
