Highway cameras will be useful this winter for travellers along Highway 16

With winter driving season almost on our doorstep (if it hasn't already arrived further inland) there's now one more option available from the Drive BC site to check out your route to Terrace and beyond.

As we noted back in April, the growing list of highway cameras along the Highway 16 corridor added Rainbow Summit to the listings earlier this spring, with a highway camera in operation at the pull out alongside the road at that point.

The Rainbow Summit camera joined those already in place between Prince Rupert and Terrace providing a snap shot of conditions, with images updated at regular intervals

Something which will prove valuable for anyone making use of the roads as we head into the winter season and allowing drivers to be prepared for changing conditions that may be ahead.

The list of the cameras available for travellers, along with links to each highway camera can be found below:
