PennDOT Road Crews
PennDOT spokesman Gene Blaum says they tried to get to work about 48 hours before the winter storm’s predicted arrival.
A storm that dumped several inches of snow on the eastern half of Pennsylvania is expected to clear the region soon and be replaced by sunny skies and a stiff breeze.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation says it will deploy the double-lane plows on highways in Montgomery County this year, and the turnpike will use them along the entire east-west line.
PennDOT road crews start their work days earlier to beat the extreme heat.
