DUNMORE — Due to the winter storm gripping the region, PennDOT is temporarily reducing the speed limit on Interstate 80 in Luzerne County.


PennDOT is urging motorists to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must head out will see speeds reduced to 45 mph in several areas, including Interstate 80 in Luzerne County.


Although PennDOT has crews treating roadways around the clock, 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.


Although PennDOT recommends not traveling during winter storms, motorists can check road conditions on more than 2,900 miles of state roads by calling 5-1-1 or visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, average traffic speeds on urban interstates and access to more than 670 traffic cameras. The 511 site also provides easy-to-use, color-coded winter road conditions for all interstates and other routes covered in the 511 reporting network. Regional Twitter alerts are also available on the 511PA website.
