Speed Limits Restored on I-80, I-79 in Northwest Region

PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restrictions that were in place on several roadways in the northwest region.

 

Due to the winter storm impacting the region, speed limits were reduced yesterday to 45 mph on Interstate 79 in Mercer and Crawford counties and on Interstate 80 in Mercer and Venango counties. All speeds are restored to their usual posted limits.

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