With a winter storm forecasted for this evening, Monday, February 27, 2023, through Tuesday, February 28, 2023, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is advising motorists in north central Pennsylvania to be aware of changing weather conditions and limit travel if possible.
The department is prepared and has sufficient amounts of salt and anti-skid on hand. Crews will be treating roads in the region during the storm and until roads are clear.
Weather predictions call for freezing rain, sleet, and snow which could cause potential icy conditions. Road surfaces, bridge decks and overpasses can be icy.
Although PennDOT crews will be 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.
