MDOT Provides Real-Time Traffic Camera Feeds

While robins may be the traditional sign of the arrival of spring, here in Metro-Detroit we know the true sign: the return of the orange barrels on the highways. With these construction zones come the inevitable traffic jams.

Traditionally, radio or TV station reports were the best place to get traffic information. While this information is generally good, many times stations will report an incident that has already cleared or may not report one that has just happened. If you want to actually see the traffic conditions before you head out, you can click here to view live feeds from Detroit-area freeway traffic cameras.

Think it is bad here? Check out traffic cameras from across the U.S. and several other countries at trafficland.com.
