ALLENTOWN, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has restored all speed limit and vehicle restrictions that were in place on interstates and major highways across the region.
Restrictions have been lifted for the PennDOT District five region, which includes Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Schuylkill counties following the latest winter storm to affect the Lehigh Valley.
PennDOT said Monday it will continue to treat roadways throughout the storm until precipitation stops and roads are clear.
Earlier Sunday, the transportation department slowed speed limits down to 45 mph on major highways across the region, including I-78 in the Lehigh Valley. It also issued a Tier 2 restriction, which prohibits oversized loads, motorcycles, RVs and other types of commercial vehicles.
While PennDOT recommends not traveling during winter storms, 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.
