Fellow Travelers,

I am planning my first trip east of Ohio and my route will include the PA Turnpike. Can anyone tell me what the rules are about rvs with propane using this route?

Thanks,


Mike

I assume you mean I70. I know of no restrictions on LPG on I70; BUT to be sure, buy a copy of Trucker's Road Atlas. It will have each state's highway, tunnel, height, and road restrictions. When in doubt of any route, follow the HAZMAT routes that are clearly marked for OTR truckers.

LP is fine through the PA pike tunnels. You do not even have to turn it off.

According to the PA Turnpike's FAQ page:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> If you are hauling propane and the weight is 100 pounds or under, you are safe to travel without restriction. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Here's the link if you'd like to see it for yourself or possibly have other questions you may need answers to.

I don't know how accurate this is, but here's is a Rules of the Road from Woodall's where LP gas restrictions are discussed at the bottom of the page.

We've travelled through the PA tunnels on the Turnpike without turning off our tanks & saw no signs directing us otherwise.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

The Trailer Life Directory also has information on which tunnels prohibit propane and which tunnels restrict propane. In the 2008 Directory, it's on page 26.
