ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Monroe County says live traffic cameras are once again up and running on the county website.
Several viewers asked News10NBC's Pat Taney why a lot of those cameras weren't working.
County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced Tuesday that the county recently completed upgrades to its real-time traffic camera system.
There are now over 100 active cameras in place throughout the county that refresh every five to 10 seconds.
The new system is a joint partnership between the county and the New York State Department of Transportation.
There will also be an additional 50 cameras installed over the next two years.
The public can access the live cameras by clicking here.
The "Live Traffic Cameras" link on the left-hand menu connects to the NYSDOT's centralized source of traffic, travel, and transit information.
"Access to real-time traffic cameras has always been a popular resource used by our residents to plan the best routes to and from home, work, or school," said Dinolfo. "Through a unique partnership with the State Department of Transportation, we now offer live feeds to over 100 cameras throughout our County. I encourage residents to take advantage of this free service at monroecounty.gov or 511NY.org, especially when local road conditions could be challenging."
