CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – As heavy snow comes down across the state, the speed limit on the Massachusetts Turnpike has been reduced.

The speed limit is down from the normal 65 MPH to 40 MPH between the New York state line in West Stockbridge and Boston. Earlier in the day, the speed limit had only been reduced from the New York line to Chicopee, but has since been expanded as conditions have worsened statewide.
