PennDOT Lifts Speed and Lane Restrictions for Winter Storm

Indiana, PA – PennDOT has lifted the speed and commercial vehicles in the right lane restrictions on I-80 and on PA 28. 

PennDOT crews are continuing to treat roadways with the primary goal to keep roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow. PennDOT will continue to treat roadways throughout the evening until 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.
