Thirty new cameras and 71 more views have been added to DriveBC’s network of highway webcams.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure announced the news on Thursday, stating the new cameras can help people better prepare when it comes to travelling throughout the province.
According to the ministry, the webcams offer real-time images of hundreds of locations throughout B.C., with 457 highway cameras delivering 873 views.
“DriveBC webcam locations are assessed based on need, identified either by residents, contractors or weather experts,” the ministry said in a press release.
“The program works to maintain its network of existing cameras placed at strategic locations throughout the province.”
Some of DriveBC’s new webcams include:
- Delta: Highway 99 at 80th Street, looking west and east. This camera was brought in by popular request from travellers so they can see the scale of traffic during air shows in the area.
- Fort St. John: Cecil Lake Road at 243rd Road, looking east.
- Horne Lake on Vancouver Island: Highway 19 at Horne Lake Road, looking north, south, west and east.
