VDOT adding new I-95 traffic cameras
Those two new poles that recently went up along Interstate 95 between the U.S. 17 exit and the Rappahannock River bridges are the first of more than a dozen new traffic cameras coming our way.
Those two new cameras aren’t operational yet, but should be soon. (You can find all of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s I-95 video feeds on its 511 page.)
There is no time frame for the other cameras, but 13 new eyes in the sky will be erected along the interstate in Stafford and Spotsylvania counties, according to VDOT’s Kelly Hannon. Another five cameras will go up between the Stafford County line and Route 234 in Prince William County.
The traffic cameras can help drivers see what is happening on the interstates, but they also help VDOT monitor the interstate for such things as incidents and congestion.
