OIL CITY, Pa. (WKBN) – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation lifted all restrictions for interstates Tuesday morning.

There are no more vehicle restrictions and the speed limits have been restored.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf issued a warning Monday afternoon asking that people only travel if they have to.

“Safety is paramount during these ongoing winter storms,” Gov. Wolf said. “State agencies, including PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA), and local municipalities are working to prepare roads and clear snow and melt ice to allow for necessary travel, but the more we stay off the roads, the easier their jobs will be and the safer we will make our state.”
