EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU) — PennDOT announced they will be reinstalling temporary speed restrictions in Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties due to changing winter weather conditions.
In a statement released Sunday night, PennDOT announced they will be reducing the speed limit to 45 mph on Interstate 81, north of the I-84 interchange in Dunmore in Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties.
PennDOT will also be putting temporary restrictions on commercial vehicles to the right lane on the restricted roadways.
This comes after PennDOT previously planned for a Tier 1 Restriction to be temporarily implemented on Interstate 81 in Lackawanna and Susquehanna Counties. PennDOT retracted those restrictions just one hour before they were expected to be put into place.
