The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has approved two stretches of state highway for use by wider truck trailers.

Portions of state Routes 641 and 2003 in Cumberland County are now open to trailers up to 102 inches wide. Before the new widths were announced, the roadways near Harrisburg and Interstate 81 were restricted to trailers up to 96 inches wide.

Road widening has allowed for the wider trailers, said Matt Hedge, manager of PennDOT’s permit office.

The portion of Route 641 with the new limit is between Routes 696 and 4025. On Route 2003, the limit extends 1.3 miles east from Route 34.
