LANSDALE, Pa. (AP) — Traffic is moving again on the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike after a jack-knifed tractor-trailer closed northbound lanes in Montgomery County.

The turnpike’s operations center says the right lane remains closed while repairs are made between the Mid-County interchange and the Lansdale exit.

Officials say the crash happened just after 5 a.m. Tuesday and traffic started moving again around 7:30.

Icy, snowy conditions have the entire Northeast Extension operating under a weather emergency. The speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph for more than 100 miles of roadway.
