Speed Restriction Lifted on Most of Pa. Turnpike

45 mph speed restriction still in effect on Northeastern Extension.

The Pa. Turnpike Commission and Pa. State Police have lifted the 45 mph speed restriction on the east-west turnpike mainline. However, the 45 mph restriction remains on the Northeastern Extension from Mid-County Interchange (Exit #20) to Clarks Summit (Exit #131). It will remain in place until the weather improves.

The Turnpike Traffic Operations Center and Maintenance Department will continue monitoring the weather and treating the roadway as needed. All travelers should keep alert for changing conditions and emergency crews working on the roadway.
