PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—Travel restrictions are in place on parts of the Pennsylvania Turnpike because of gusting winds and drifting snow.
Turnpike officials say they’re putting a reduced 45 mph speed limit into effect on an 86-mile stretch of the highway from New Stanton to Breezewood, as snowy conditions continue Wednesday in parts of western Pennsylvania.
Commercial vehicles are being restricted to the right lane on that stretch.
Pittsburgh and other areas in the western part of the state have gotten up to 9-10 inches and snow is still falling.
The snow has stopped in much of eastern Pennsylvania, including the Philadelphia area, which saw about half a foot.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation says it’s not seeing many problems, but that crews are out focusing on drifting.
