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'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.
