New Real-Time Traffic Cameras Available on MoDOT Web Site

Jefferson City - Emergency responders in mid-Missouri now have a way to see real time traffic on state highways, thanks to new cameras available on the Missouri Department of Transportation's Central District Web site.

MoDOT has installed seven cameras in mid-Missouri, primarily along Interstate 70, to help MoDOT personnel and emergency responders determine traffic flow during vehicle crashes, road construction, or other highway incidents.

Five cameras are installed along I-70 in Columbia. One more focuses on the Missouri River Bridge on I-70 in Cooper County. Another camera is positioned at Route 50/63 and Missouri Boulevard in Jefferson City.

The cameras function in a similar manner to cameras already in place at Kansas City, St. Louis, and Springfield. Anyone can view them at www.modot.org/central by clicking on the "Real Time Traffic" link and selecting a specific camera. They take a snapshot every 60 seconds, and no information is recorded or stored. The cameras do not function as "red light" cameras or regulate traffic signals.

MoDOT plans to add additional cameras in Central Missouri as time and budget allows. The cameras in place now are primarily located on I-70 because it is the busiest route in the area and incidents along the interstate can cause significant traffic impacts. Cameras on I-70 also allow MoDOT employees to view traffic flow and provide more accurate information on the I-70 message boards.

To view the traffic cameras or for more information, log onto www.modot.org/central or contact the Missouri Department of Transportation at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
