RALEIGH - Residents and visitors can see firsthand how approaching winter weather may affect North Carolina roads and bridges by using the live traffic camera feature on the Traffic Information Management System (TIMS) page of the NCDOT website. NCDOT has live traffic cameras set up across the state in and around major metropolitan areas, as well as along the coast, to give motorists a look at updated weather and road conditions.
This brief tutorial shows how you can access and use those live traffic cameras to "know before you go" about your commute.
Use TIMS to stay updated on all the latest traffic and road conditions before, during and after the winter storm strikes.
Some cameras may not be operational if the storm knocks out power and connections to the network.
