Winter highways can be treacherous, and knowing the conditions can mean the difference between a crash on the highway, or a weekend spent at home in front of the fire.

To better help travelers see what they’re getting into DriveBC has placed a webcam on highway 27.

“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,” said Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad

The camera is located about 32 km south of Fort St. James, facing north.

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

The video is available on DriveBC.ca under BC highway cams on the left menu.
