HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -
The speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles per hour on a large section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Interstates 81, 83, 78, 80 and Routes 15 and 581.
Due to a winter storm moving through the area, PennDOT is urging drivers to stay off the roads. If they must travel, the speed limit has been reduced on Interstate 81; Interstate 83, U.S. Route 15 in Adams, York and Cumberland counties; and Route 581.
The speed limit is also reduced on the Pa. Turnpike from the Ohio line to the Blue Mountain/Kittatinny tunnels west of Carlisle. In a press release, the Turnpike warned that speed and truck restrictions could be implemented in the south central region of the Turnpike if conditions worsen.
These travel restrictions come as Central Pennsylvania is set to receive a couple of inches of snow and freezing rain. For abc27's latest forecast, click here (http://ow.ly/gmwDI).
Trucks pulling double or empty trailers are banned from traveling on the Turnpike between New Stanton (Exit #75) to Breezewood (Exit #161). The ban includes vehicles pulling, campers, utility and horse trailers.
The Turnpike is requesting that residents do not travel on the Turnpike from mile 0 to 200 unless it's necessary. If you do travel, make sure your headlights are on. To report an emergency on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, dial *11.
