As anticipated, the Pa. Turnpike Commission lifted the 45 mph speed limit restriction and the ban on certain commercial and non-commercial trailers traveling the entire Turnpike at 6 a.m. today.


Motorists should still check for changes or updates and drive with caution as high winds and drifting snow could cause changing road conditions.
