Do you drive on Onondaga Lake Parkway? If so, here is an important reminder: as of November 1st, the seasonal speed limit reduction will be in effect. The speed limit will drop from 55 miles per hour (mph) to 45 mph.
The reduction in speed is enacted by the New York State Department of Transportation every winter due to the harsh weather conditions between November 1st and April 1st.
Blowing and drifting snow off the lake can create difficult conditions for drivers as they negotiate the Parkway during the winter months. As a result, the speed limit is reduced during the winter months. The speed limit will return to 55 mph on April 1, 2019. Drive carefully!
