Drive BC adds third highway camera to Prince Rupert to Terrace stretch of Highway 16

Travellers between Terrace and Prince Rupert have one more resource available now whenever they go to check highway conditions along the Skeena portion of Highway 16.

On Thursday, Drive BC debuted a third highway camera between the two communities, with the introduction of a video link to the Kwinitsa area of the highway.

Kwinitsa highway camera is now operational
along Highway 16

The Kwinitsa monitoring station joins one at the Port Edward turnoff and a camera at Kasiks, all offering wider coverage for the highway.  Allowing for motorists to see road conditions related to the  unpredictable Northwest weather, particularly as Pacific storm fronts come ashore.

A sample of some of the nature of those changing road conditions can be found on our archive page.

Travellers can access Drive BC information from their website and the  DriveBC NW twitter feed.
