Lane Restrictions and Speed Reduction in Place on Interstate 86 Eastbound in Erie County


A lane restriction has been put into place on Interstate 86 eastbound from the Interstate 90 interchange to the New York state line in Greenfield Township, Erie County.

The right lane is expected to remain closed while work is completed in connection with a preservation project along the corridor. 

A speed reduction of 45 miles per hour is also in place for traffic in left lane of Interstate 86 eastbound.

PennDOT urges motorists to slow down when driving in work zones, and also to be alert to changing conditions, avoid distractions and to pay attention to signs and flaggers. Drive responsibly in work zones for your safety and the safety of the workers.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 860 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.
