Gov. Rendell Orders Closure Of Major Roadways

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ― Pennsylvania's governor has shut down three major interstates due to blizzard conditions.
Gov. Ed Rendell ordered the closures of Interstate 83 and Interstate 78, and part of Interstate 81 -- from the Maryland state line to I-80.

The closures took effect at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Rendell says blizzard conditions have made the roadways impassable. He says he's expecting to close more roadways as conditions deteriorate.

Pennsylvania Turnpike officials say they plan to keep that road open for now. But a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission says officials are constantly monitoring conditions on the toll road.
