UPDATE 9 p.m.: A tractor trailer has crashed into a guardrail, resulting in two lane closures near the Sterling, Mass. overpass.

(NECN: Nicole Jacobs, Charlton, Mass.) - Massachusetts State Police have reduced the speed limit on the Mass. Turnpike from the usual 65mph down to 40mph. Slick, slushy road conditions influenced the decision.

MassDOT is urging people to take precaution if out on the roads. They are working hard to keep roads clear and will be out in full force throughout the evening and early morning.

Staying ahead of the snowfall will be a priority of MassDOT, as they anticipate highway travel to resume Sunday.
