EARLIER: PennDOT is temporarily reducing the speed limit to 45 mph on Interstates 86 and 90 in Erie County due to the winter weather.

The affected interstates include:

  • Interstate 86 from the from the New York state line to Exit 1A (I-90 East/Buffalo)
  • Interstate 90 from the Ohio state line to the New York state line

On roadways with speed restrictions, commercial vehicles must move to the right lane.
