Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, the most heavily-traveled time of the year in the United States.  PennDOT has highlighted tools available to drivers to make travel as safe and efficient as possible for the upcoming Thanksgiving travel period.  Travelers are encouraged to visit the “Historic Holiday Traffic” page at www.511PA.com which allows users to see how traffic speeds on the Wednesday before and Sunday after Thanksgiving in previous years compared to traffic conditions during a typical, non-holiday week.  PennDOT will remove lane restrictions and suspend construction projects wherever possible through the holiday period. Motorists can see remaining construction projects at www.511PA.com before they travel.

 

The National Weather Service and AccuWeather are predicting snow squalls in our region later today.  Squalls could cause whiteout conditions with flash freezing of snow and ice on roadways.  If you encounter a snow squall while driving, exit the roadway if possible.  Reduce speed, turn on headlights and hazard lights, and avoid slamming your brakes.

 

A Shirleysburg man has been arrested for defiant criminal trespass stemming from an incident earlier this month on Croghan Pike in Huntingdon County.  The Pennsylvania State Police was dispatched to investigate damage to a drain culvert on Ridge Road.  The damage occurred between November 7th and 9th, and was estimated at more than $3,000.  Anyone with information is asked to contact State Police at Huntingdon.

 

The American Red Cross will be in Mifflin County for a blood drive today.  The blood mobile will be at the Reedsville Fire Company on Firehouse Boulevard from 1:30 pm to 7:00 pm.  The Red Cross will be at the Juniata County Library in Mifflintown Friday from 1:15 pm to 5:45 pm.
