CLEARFIELD – PennDOT has lifted the speed limit restriction that was in place on Interstate 99 and most of I-80 in the region.
Due to the winter storm that impacted 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 in Clinton and Centre counties.
The speed reduction remains in place for I-80 in Clearfield County.
Additionally, I-80 eastbound traffic is moving very slowly between the DuBois/101 interchange and the Clearfield/120 interchange. Motorists should be alert for stopped or slowed traffic through this area. Message boards are alerting drivers to the delays. I-80 motorists can also access up-to-date closure information on the Highway Advisory Radio System (HARS) at 1640 on the AM dial.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras.
