Pennsylvania Announces Travel Restrictions Effective Noon Saturday

Harrisburg, PA – Due to high winds combined with sleet and ice in northwestern Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is imposing restrictions on certain trucks and other vehicles on the entire length of Interstates 86 and 90.

PennDOT is urging motorists to use caution during the event and generally reduce speeds and be aware of changing weather conditions.

Restrictions will begin at noon Saturday and will remain in place until conditions warrant their removal. The restrictions reflect Level 1 of the commonwealth’s draft travel restriction framework, and ban the following vehicles:

Tractors without trailers;
Tractors towing unloaded or lightly loaded enclosed trailers, open trailers or tank trailers;
Tractors towing unloaded or lightly loaded tandem trailers;
Enclosed cargo delivery trucks that meet the definition of a CMV;
Passenger vehicles (cars, SUV’s, pickup trucks, etc.) towing trailers;
Recreational vehicles/motorhomes;
School buses, commercial buses and motor coaches;
and motorcycles.

Restrictions will be communicated via variable message boards and the 511PA traveler information website (www.511pa.com) and smartphone apps.

Speed limits are restricted to 45 mph on these interstates for all vehicles while the vehicle restrictions are in place, and commercial vehicles not affected by the bans must move to the right lane. Additional speed restrictions on other interstates could be added depending on changing conditions.

In response to the anticipated storm, PennDOT has applied anti icing materials to many roads across the state and is activating its statewide command center and regional command centers in areas most affected by the storm.

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 www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 950 traffic cameras. Users can also see plow truck statuses and travel alerts along a specific route using the "Check My Route" tool.

Causer Announces Local Fire, Ambulance Grants

BRADFORD – Fire and emergency response organizations in Cameron, McKean and Potter counties have been awarded more than $420,000 in grants from the state, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) announced today.

“As our emergency response organizations continue to struggle financially, these grants are sure to be put to good use,” Causer said. “As always, I am grateful for the men and women who work so hard to protect our communities and am pleased we can continue to support them with this valuable funding.”

The funding comes from an ongoing grant program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner (OSFC). All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not General Fund tax revenue.

Projects eligible for funding include construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, purchase or repair of equipment, training, or reduction of existing debt.
