HARRISBURG – PennDOT, Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA), and Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) today held a media briefing to outline the commonwealth’s plans for services in the coming winter season and discuss how the public can successfully prepare.

Their number-one priority is safety, and that guides the winter preparations and operations. They shared that they are ready for the season ahead and motorists are their partners in making this season a safe one. The public can access travel information on nearly 40,000 state-maintained roadway miles year-round at 511PA.com, and during the winter they can find plow-truck locations and details of when state-maintained roadways were last plowed. To help the public prepare for the season and share information about winter services, PennDOT offers operational information and traveler resources at penndot.gov/winter. The site also has a complete winter guide with detailed information about winter services.
