Hey everyone, I had a quick question about the turnpike. We are currently living in Delaware, but are from Ohio and wanting to go home for Christmas. We get on the Turnpike at Harrisburg and stay on it until the Ohio line. Anyways, I know everyone has been getting a lot of snow, and I'm a little paranoid to drive through the mountains on the turnpike with any winter conditions. Do they keep the roads clear? Is it a bad drive? Or do you know of a different route that would be better? Sorry so many questions, and thanks for any answers!

I hate the fact that PA has two agencies doing the same thing, what a waste, but one thing I've noticed is that often the Turnpike does better at snow clearing than PennDOT, so there you go. They're usually pretty good, although if it comes down fast and furious there's always a chance you'll hit it at exactly the worst time.

Try to look ahead a few days, if possible. Weather conditions in the mountains can be vastly different than those from Irwin west, so getting some information on the mountain stretch itself will help, too.

In general, the PA Turnpike is kept clearer of snow than other State roadways.
