Turnpike Commission Lowers Speed Limit

Limitations needed because of safety concerns caused by winter weather conditions.

Heavy snow and freezing temperatures across the state are causing challenging driving conditions. As a result, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and the Pennsylvania State Police have implemented a reduced speed limit of 45 mph in the area between Donegal Interchange (#91) and the Delaware River Bridge (#359) as well as the entire Northeastern Extension from Mid-County (#20) to Clarks Summit (#131) beginning immediately.

Turnpike maintenance crews are actively treating the roadway throughout the region and the Turnpike's Traffic Operations Center will continue to monitor the weather across the system. If conditions improve, the restrictions will be lifted at the suitable time.
