Montoursville, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is advising motorists to watch out for slow-moving construction vehicles during the warm months, as crews and contractors work on various projects throughout District 3-0. The district comprises Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, and Union counties.

While many projects involve work on interstates and high-volume roadways, motorists should be prepared to encounter construction on less-traveled rural roads. Depending on the project, drivers may come across slow-moving PennDOT work vehicles and experience changes in traffic patterns.

Motorists are urged to remain alert and exercise caution when encountering mowing, herbicide spraying, and line painting vehicles, giving them ample room to operate. Drivers should slow down and maintain vigilance in work zones.

To check the conditions on major roadways, motorists can visit, a free service available 24 hours a day. The website offers traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to over 1,000 traffic cameras. The 511PA service is also accessible through iPhone and Android smartphone applications, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts available on the 511PA website.
