A 45 mph speed limit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike has been expanded to include the stretch of highway from the Blue Mountain Interchange (Exit #201) eastward to the Morgantown Interchange (Exit #298). This morning, the Turnpike had lowered the speed limit to 45 mph from the Ohio border to the Blue Mountain Interchange due to snowfall.

The 45 mph speed limit restriction is now in place on nearly 300 miles of the PA Turnpike, from milepost 0 to milepost 298.

No truck or trailer restrictions were implemented on the PA Turnpike at the time of this release.

Tow plows (large plows pulled behind a truck) and plow trains (several plow trucks in a row) continue to operate across the Turnpike; motorists should say far back from these vehicles. Do not attempt to pass a snow plow as conditions in front are likely unfavorable.

Turnpike motorists will be alerted of any changes or further restrictions via Variable Message Signs, Highway Advisory Radio station 1640AM, and the Turnpike web site,

Please use caution when traveling in inclement weather. If you must be on the highway, please visit (select the TRIP menu on the left) or call or the Turnpike travel advisory hotline, 1.866.976.8747, to check conditions before you leave.

Dial *11 to report an emergency on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
