HARRISBURG, Pa. (WKBN) – Due to the severity of the winter storm, PennDOT is temporarily reducing the speed limit on several roadways in the region.
Drivers are urged to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must head out will see speeds reduced to 45 mph on the following highways:
- Interstate 79 in Erie, Crawford and Mercer counties
- Interstate 90 in Erie County
- Interstate 86 in Erie County
- Interstate 80 in Mercer and Venango counties
