PennDOT has lifted speed
limit restrictions that had been in place on several central Pennsylvania highways because of the winter storm since Thursday afternoon.
All speeds are now restored to their usual posted limits.
Speed limits had been reduced to 45 mph on Interstate 81 in Franklin, Cumberland, Dauphin and Lebanon counties, on Interstate 83 in York, Cumberland and Dauphin
counties, on Interstate 78 in Lebanon County, and on
Interstate 283 in Dauphin County.
Speed limits were also reduced to 45 mph on:
- Route 283 in Dauphin and Lancaster counties,
- Route 22/322 in Dauphin and Perry counties,
- Route 581 in Cumberland County,
- Route 11 in Franklin and Cumberland counties,
- Route 15 in Adams, York and Cumberland counties,
- Route 11/15 in Cumberland and Perry County counties,
- Route 30 in Lancaster and York counties, and
- Route 222 in Lancaster County between Route 30 and the Berks County line.
PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny said crews continue to treat roadways in the area and will continue until roads are clear.
Due to the strong winds, he said drivers should be alert for drifting snow on roadways, including the interstates.
