Some EMTA routes have resumed Monday as the winter storm continues.
The Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority (EMTA) has announced routes will start to resume Monday as street and weather conditions improve.
Routes that have resumed include the following at this time:
- Route 25/30 Wesleyville / West Millcreek
- Route 26 East 26th Street
- Route 29 Asbury
- Route 31 Frontier
- Route 32 Westlake
The Crawford Area Transportation Authority (CATA) has announced all service Monday is suspended, except for medically necessary trips. Normal service will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 18.
As the snow continues to fall, PennDOT officials are urging people to avoid any travel during the storm. If you do need to travel you are advised to use caution, reduce speeds and be aware of changing weather conditions.
With the freezing temperatures, motorists should be aware of blowing and drifting snow, which can cause icy areas on roadways, including overpasses and bridges.
Roads that look wet may actually be icy, so extra caution is needed when approaching bridges and highway ramps where ice can form without warning.
