Central region

Early morning update on travel restrictions in the North Central region

As winter storm Oaklee passes through the region, PennDOT provides an update on travel restrictions in north-central Pennsylvania. Effective at 6:00 a.m.:

Route 322/22 from the Juniata County line to I-99 in Center County will see the 45 mph speed reduction and restriction of commercial vehicles in the right lane only lifted.

Interstate 80, from the 161 interchange in Bellefonte to the Jefferson County line, will change from a Level 4 restriction to a Level 1 restriction. The speed reduction to 45 mph and commercial vehicles in the lane of right only will remain in place.

Interstate 99 from the Blair County line to I-80 in Bellefonte will change from a Level 4 restriction to a Level 1 restriction. The speed reduction to 45 mph and commercial vehicles in the right lane only will remain in place.

Although PennDOT crews treat the roads, the department’s primary goal is to keep the roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow. PennDOT will continue to treat roads throughout the storm until the precipitation stops and roads are clear.

All travel restrictions will be communicated via variable message signs, the 511PA traveler information website at www.511PA.com and smartphone apps. Motorists can also sign up for alerts on the website.

Although PennDOT recommends against travel during winter storms, motorists can check conditions for more than 40,000 miles of road, including color-coded winter conditions for 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. The 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to over 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone app for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1 or following regional Twitter alerts.
