New webcam for the North Island

A new webcam will be installed at Hwy. 19 and the Port Alice Road.

The North Island is getting one of 30 web cameras to be included in the province’s DriveBC network.

The new North Island cam is scheduled to be installed at Hwy. 19 and the Port Alice Road, south of Port Hardy.

The cameras will give motorists more opportunities to check real-time traffic, road and weather conditions as they plan their trips, said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Blair Lekstrom.

“The popularity of DriveBC shows that drivers are making smart choices before they leave on a trip,” said Lekstrom. “It is important to know what the road conditions are like along your route, and these new webcams give motorists an excellent tool to help them plan a safe journey.”

Installations are scheduled to begin this spring, and all are expected to be in operation before winter.
