Section of I-80 Eastbound Restricted in Clinton County

LOCK HAVEN – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) is alerting motorists that a section of I-80 eastbound in Clinton County is restricted to one lane, with considerable backlog and delays.

Earlier Tuesday morning, a multiple vehicle crash had closed the roadway from the Lock Haven/178 exit to the 212B/Williamsport exit. That closure has been upgraded to a lane restriction but considerable traffic back-up remains and delays are lengthy.

PennDOT expects this restriction to last well into the morning. Message boards along I-80 are alerting drivers to the restriction and delays. Drivers may wish to avoid the area by choosing alternate routes.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 850 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
