Most Speed Limit Restored on Roadways in the Region

Dunmore-PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restrictions on all roadways in the region with the exception of Interstates 84, 380 and I-80 from I-81 to the New Jersey border. The speed limit reduction of 45 mph will remain in place on Interstates 84, 380 and I-80 from I-81 to the New Jersey border due to continued blowing and drifting snow.

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

Motorists can check road conditions on more than 2,900 miles of state roads by calling 511 or visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, average traffic speeds on urban interstates and access to more than 670 traffic cameras.
