PennDOT Reduces Speeds on Interstate 81
Due to the severity of the winter storm, PennDOT is temporarily reducing the speed limit on Interstate 81 in Schuylkill County.
PennDOT is urging motorists to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must head out will see speeds reduced to 45 mph on the highways.
Although PennDOT crews have been treating roadways, the department’s primary goal is to keep roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow. PennDOT will continue to treat roadways throughout the storm until precipitation stops and roads are clear.
