The main determining factor when deciding on implementation of travel restrictions or bans will be the anticipated travel impacts and the potential threat to the impacted public if stranded on the roadway for an extended period. Appreciating the economic impact of travel restrictions and bans on commercial haulers and transportation companies, every effort will be made to only implement travel restrictions and/or bans when needed, and to keep them in place for the shortest duration possible.
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. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
