Pennsylvania once again bans some trucks due to weather


With a winter snowstorm bearing down on the state of Pennsylvania, transportation officials have issued another commercial vehicle travel ban.

The partial commercial vehicle will tentatively go into effect at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, January 29 and will be lifted at 6 p.m, according to Fox 56. The travel ban only impacts trucks with empty trailers, trucks hauling double trailers, motorhomes, and motorcycles.

The commercial vehicle ban is effective on the following roadways:

  • Interstate 380 full length from I-81 to I-80;
  • I-78 full length from I-81 to the New Jersey state line;
  • I-80 from I-180 to the New Jersey state line;
  • I-81 from I-83 to the New York state line;
  • I-84 full length from I-81 to the New York state line; and
  • I-476 (PA Turnpike, Northeast Ext.) from I-78 to Clarks Summit (exit 131)
