Speed Limits Restored on Roads in North Central Region

Commercial restrictions also lifted

Clearfield, PA – With recent severe winter weather conditions ending, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has restored speed limits on a number of roadways in the north central region.

PennDOT has restored normal speed limits on the following roads:

I-80 in Clearfield, Centre, and Clinton counties;

I-99 from the PA Turnpike in Bedford through Centre County;

Route 219 in Clearfield, Elk, and McKean counties;

Route 322 in Centre, Mifflin, and Juniata counties;

Additionally, all commercial vehicle bans have been lifted on I-80 and I-99 in the region.

To help make decisions regarding winter travel, motorists are encouraged to “Know Before You Go” by checking 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 860 traffic cameras. Users can also see plow truck statuses and travel alerts along a specific route using the “Check My Route” tool.

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.

Motorists should be aware that all vehicles should be fully clear of ice and snow before winter travel. If snow or ice is dislodged or falls from a moving vehicle and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian causing death or serious bodily injury, the operator of that vehicle could receive a $200 to $1,000 fine.
