Pa. Turnpike restricts some trailers for winter storm

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Pennsylvania Turnpike will ban certain commercial trailers from the toll highway during a winter storm that could drop up to a foot of snow in parts of eastern Pennsylvania.

Beginning at 11 p.m. Wednesday, no empty and double tractor-trailers will be permitted from Breezewood to the Delaware River Bridge and on the entire Northeastern Extension.

The speed limit on the Turnpike will be lowered to 45 miles per hour in areas where conditions warrant.

According to a Turnpike news release, extra maintenance crews will be on duty across the highway system.

For safety reasons, drivers are asked to not pass plow trucks clearing the roadway.
