ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY – PennDOT has reduced the speed limit on some major roads and multiple communities have declared snow emergencies with the latest round of snow moving through the region.

Speed limits are at 45 mph on I-99 through Bedford and Blair Counties, and along the Pennsylvania Turnpike from the Ohio Connection through Lebanon-Lancaster. The reduction will allow plow trucks to keep the roads passable by plowing and treating the roads.

Hyndman Borough, Bedford County and College Township, Centre County are two communities who have declared snow emergencies. Residents are asked to remove vehicles from all streets so crews can clear the roads. All sidewalks must be cleared of snow and ice within 24 hours after the storm has ended.

8:30 a.m. UPDATE: Harris Township, Centre County has also declared a snow emergency, lasting until 9 p.m. Thursday.
