Due to the winter storm spreading over much of the Northeast, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has temporarily reduced the speed limit on several major roadways in northeastern Pennsylvania today as of noon.

All truck drivers are reminded that during this speed limit reduction, trucks are to travel in the right lane of the highway.

PennDOT encourages motorists to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must be on the roads will see speeds reduced to 45 mph on the following highways:

  • Interstate 81 in Luzerne, Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties
  • Interstate 84 in Lackawanna, Wayne and Pike counties
  • Interstate 380 in Lackawanna County
  • Interstate 80 in Luzerne County
