Nelson gets new Drive BC webcam along with Trail and Creston
Nelson has received one of the many Drive BC webcams — one of 30 new devices being installed this year on the website network.
Two other new cameras are now operational in Trail and Creston giving motorists a real-time view of weather and road conditions on provincial highways.
The Nelson webcam can bee seen at : http://prd.images.drivebc.ca/bchighwaycam/pub/html/www/305.html
It's located just outside the Nelson city limits and points south on Highway 6 at the Rosemont/Uphill interchange.
The webcam should be a big help to motorists traveling the highway and to skiers during winter on their way to Whitewater Ski Hill.
Earlier this year a camera was installed at the Balfour Ferry Landing. There is also a webcam on the Kootenay Lake side allowing travelers to view the ferry lineups at the respective landings.
The new Trail webcam can be seen at http://prd.images.drivebc.ca/bchighwaycam/pub/html/www/307.html.
It's Highway 3B near Devito Drive, looking east along a very busy commuter route.
The Creston cam is at http://prd.images.drivebc.ca/bchighwaycam/pub/html/www/306.html
It is situated near the junction of Highway 3A and Highway 3, and will provide a south-easterly view of a key decision making location for travellers.
The addition of 30 new webcams this year will bring the number of webcam images available on DriveBC to over 250. All are expected to be installed and operating by winter.
Priority for new web cameras is given to routes prone to extreme weather or traffic congestion, and for sites where there is not already a nearby webcam.
