CLEARFIELD – PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restriction that was in place on Interstate 80 and Interstate 99 in the region.
Due to the winter storm impacting the region, speed limits were reduced yesterday to 45 miles per hour on I-80 in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton counties and on I-99 in Centre County.
Speeds have now been restored to their usual posted limits. PennDOT is continuing to treat roadways in the area and will continue until roads are clear.
