Snow related traffic, transit issues continue Friday

The traffic headache created by Thursday's snow, rain, and ice continued into the morning Friday.

While SEPTA was able to get most of their lines up and running with relatively minor delays, the Paoli-Thorndale Regional Rail line was suspended but has since been fully restored.

A number of other bus and trolley lines were also delayed. SEPTA riders can check their system status at

AMTRAK had similar issues Friday morning as their Keystone line remained suspended earlier in the morning, stranding some travelers at 30th Street Station overnight. Keystone service later resumed west of Philadelphia.

New Jersey Transit, PATCO, and DART were all operating with expected delays Friday morning as well.

As for the roadways, most of the major highways are in much better shape than they were Thursday night. Area schools opening late may have helped give road crews time to get some more of those highways and on and off ramps cleared.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley was in Allentown Friday morning where drivers were stranded at a standstill on Route 309 for several hours. The backup is believed to be related to another backup ahead on I-78, where even more drivers were stranded.

PennDOT says their biggest challenge Friday morning was the volume roadways preventing some plows and road crews from getting where they needed to go.
