PennDOT has lifted the speed limit and right-lane-only commercial vehicle restrictions that were in place on several roads in the region. Roads now operating under normal, posted speed limits are:
- Interstate 99 in Centre County
- Interstate 80 from Clarion to I-99 at the 161/Bellefonte interchange in Centre County.
PennDOT expects to lift the speed restriction on I-80 from the 161 interchange through Clinton County a little later this morning.
Due to winter storm Garrett, speed limits were reduced last night to 45 mph on those roads.
PennDOT is continuing to treat roadways in the area and will continue until roads are clear.
