Part of Pennsylvania Turnpike slowed — for snow

    Tired of this weather?

    Well at least you’re not in western Pennsylvania. Because not only is it snowing there, but it’s so bad that the speed limit has been lowered on part of the Turnpike.

    As of 8 a.m., the 55-mile stretch between the exit at Donegal and eastward to the Bedord exit is moving at 45 mph. The usual Turnpike speed is between 55 and 65 mph, depending on the town you’re passing through. The Associated Press also reports that Interstate 80 east of Dubois has been accumulating snow.


    Rain, rain go away — as long as snow isn’t the trade-off.
