WINTER TRAVEL: Pa. lifts travel restrictions on interstates, turnpike in Central Pa.

Road crews are preparing for the worst as a blizzard is expected to hit the region tonight and continue until Tuesday afternoon.

Wolf said an emergency declaration hasn't been issued but could be if the situation warrants one, and travel restrictions may also be put in place Monday evening into Tuesday if that is needed to minimize unsafe travel.

National Weather Service storm warnings last into Tuesday night across eastern Pennsylvania.

She said snow is expected to snarl morning commutes Tuesday morning.




According to a news release from the governor, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Pennsylvania Turnpike will restrict speeds on interstates and "some large commercial vehicular travel".

PEMA will coordinate resources statewide, including nearly 700 members of the Pennsylvania National Guard who will be deployed to help first responders and county emergency managers.

The restrictions on speed and types of vehicles allowed on some of Pennsylvania's interstate highways and expressways have been lifted as snow storm Stella eases and moves eastward.

Northeastern Pennsylvania is still seeing the effects of the winter storm and drivers are urged to exercise caution when traveling in the area.
