MONTGOMERY, AL – The Alabama Department of Transportation Tuesday announced that 13 additional traffic information cameras have been put online on the ALDOT web site, providing visual images of traffic conditions at 21 locations along Interstates 65 and 85 in the metropolitan Montgomery area.

ALDOT first introduced eight new cameras to the Montgomery area in December 2010. Camera locations coincide with some of the more heavily traveled areas approaching downtown Montgomery. Additional cameras in the Montgomery area will be added in the near future. 

Views from the 21 Montgomery cameras along with more than 120 other cameras in the Birmingham, Mobile, and Tuscaloosa areas can be found under the Traffic Information and Cameras link at www.dot.state.al.us

ALDOT's traffic cameras allow motorists to check traffic conditions and provide valuable information that helps ALDOT and other officials during hours of peak congestion, emergency response, Gulf Coast evacuations and other states of emergency. The new cameras in the Montgomery area currently provide time-lapsed still images that update every 2-3 minutes, while many ALDOT cameras provide real-time video feeds. Future upgrades will be determined by traffic monitoring needs and the availability of new technologies.
