This is the first webcam located on Highway 27, giving Fort St. James and area residents a real-time look at highway conditions.

Motorists can use this webcam to plan ahead and make smarter, safer decisions about driving. The camera is located at one of the higher elevations on Hwy. 27, which can be subject to adverse weather conditions.

“I’m always happy to see more safety features on Highway 27. This upgrade will help drivers plan their routes during harsh weather conditions and notify them of any delays,” Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad said.

Project details:  the web camera is located on Highway 27, about 32 km south of Fort St. James, looking north.
