The wintry weather is forcing state officials to reduce the speed on a busy state highway.
MassDOT announced that the speed limit on the Mass. Pike from the New York state line to Exit 6 in Springfield has been lowered to 40 miles per hour.
As of 10 a.m., MassDOT said that they had over 470 crews out clearing and treating the roads in the central, western, and northern regions of the Commonwealth.
Motorists are being urged to take it slow, #DontCrowdThePlow, and to avoid travel is possible.
