Turnpike speed returns to normal after storm

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – Officials reduced the speed of the turnpike and major highways across the Midstate because of Thursday’s snow storm.

Turnpike speeds were reduced to 45 mph from the Somerset Interchange (#110) to the Bensalem Interchange (#351) and on the entire Northeastern Extension (I-476).

That restriction was lifted around 6:30 a.m.

Turnpike crews will continue to treat until precipitation ends and roads are clear.
