PennDOT Lifts All Vehicle Restrictions in North Central Region

Clearfield, PA – As winter conditions subside, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is lifting vehicle restrictions and restoring normal speed limits in the north central region of Pennsylvania.

Remaining restrictions in other parts of the state will be communicated via variable message boards, the 511PA traveler information website at and smartphone apps. Motorists can also sign up for alerts on by clicking on “Personal Alerts” in the left-hand menu.

Although PennDOT crews are treating roadways, 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.

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 accessible on the 511PA website.
