Penn DOT Publication 23, Chapter 1, defines the Freeze/Thaw Period as "the calendar period between approximately February 15th and April 15th, during which times the temperature results in changes (weakening) to the structural strength of the road surface. The POSTING AUTHORITY may require additional restrictions due to severe weather and other unforeseen circumstances."
