MERCER CO., Pa. (WKBN) – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation dropped the speed limit on Interstate 80 to 45 mph in Mercer and Venango counties.

PennDOT reduced the speed limit on Thursday night and Friday afternoon due to winter storm conditions.

While roadways have been treated, PennDOT said its primary goal is to keep them “passable,” not completely free of snow and ice.
