New webcams, new features enhance DriveBC website

A total of 30 new webcams are being added to the network this year, bringing the number of webcam images available on DriveBC to over 250

 

As recent snow flurries in mountain passes remind us that  winter weather will soon be here, the government of B.C. has  activated another 18 new highway webcams, and has upgraded the Route  Planner feature on its DriveBC website to provide motorists with  additional tools to plan their trip and travel safe.

A total of 30 new webcams are being added to the network this year,  bringing the number of webcam images available on DriveBC to over  250. All are expected to be installed and operating by winter, giving  motorists a real-time view of weather and road conditions.

Webcams are just one tool to help you plan your journey. DriveBC also  features a Route Planner, which has been upgraded to take into  consideration any delays, road closures and border waits along the  way. In addition to showing them as icons on the map, the turn-by- turn directions will include the information on any highway message  signs associated with that route, and webcam images to give you a  full picture.

There are mobile (tablet and smart phone) versions of DriveBC’s Route  Planner, too. They provide the same information in the turn-by-turn  directions as you’d see on a desktop, and use geo-location to fill in  your start point. However, the map has not been included for smart  phones due to their display limitations.
