DriveBC took a significant step in enhancing road safety by incorporating 11 additional cameras with 27 new perspectives into its network. This expansion aims to provide drivers with a better picture of traffic and weather conditions, particularly crucial during winter travel.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure deployed crews across the province to identify optimal locations for these webcams based on the specific needs outlined by contractors, and weather experts.

The new cameras and views added to the network in 2023 include:

  • Ucluelet-Tofino Highway junction on Highway 4, offering north, west, and east views of Vancouver Island's west coast.
  • Steamboat camera on Highway 3/93 near Ha Ha Creek Road, equipped with west and east views, along with an attached weather station to furnish essential information about current conditions.
  • Adams Lake ferry landing, situated approximately 80 kilometers northeast of Kamloops and 50 kilometers northwest of Salmon Arm, now provides real-time conditions for ferry users.
  • Highway 1's Vedder River Bridge in the Fraser Valley
  • Little Fort north camera on Highway 5, about two kilometers north of Highway 24. This installation includes a dynamic message sign (DMS) to alert southbound drivers about prevailing conditions as they approach the junction at Highway 5 and Highway 24.
  • Highway 3 camera at Allison Pass, located 10 kilometers west of Manning Park resort, underwent recent replacement, including a new westward view.

As part of its annual network expansion efforts, these latest additions bring the total DriveBC webcam network to 496 cameras, offering a comprehensive 1,013 views of current road conditions.
