6 new streaming webcams to give drivers real-time views of roadways

By Tris DeRoma

The Los Alamos Public Works Department launched a new tool for commuters and others looking for a faster or better way to get around town.

Through a link on the county’s website, visitors can view six intersections and roads simultaneously on their phones or their computers before heading out the door.

Called “MyDrive,” the program was developed and implemented in July by the Traffic and Streets Division within Public Works.

Crews mounted web cameras at five locations  in Los Alamos and one in White Rock that stream real-time views of major intersections and busy roadways.

County Manager Harry Burgess said the system cost $3,500 and is a good investment for all who will use it.

The county is piggybacking off a system that was already installed with Federal Emergency Management Agency funds after the Cerro Grande Fire.

“And honestly, to add a webcam camera these days is really not that expensive these days,” Burgess said.

The funds for the camera system came out of the Public Works budget, he said.

The system is expected to improve traffic flow and enhance safety on the road, Burgess said.
