PennDOT reduces speed on some Lawrence County roadways

Interstates 79 and 376 have been reduced to 45 mph due to the winter storm

LAWRENCE CO., Pa. (WYTV) – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has temporarily reduced speeds on two interstates in Lawrence County Friday night.

Interstates 79 and 376 have been reduced to 45 mph due to the winter storm.

Although PennDOT crews have been treating roadways, the department’s primary goal is to keep roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow. PennDOT will continue to treat roadways throughout the storm until precipitation stops and roads are clear.
