Victoria, British Columbia – A new highway Web camera has been added to British Columbia’s Highway 113 near the Nisga’a community of Laxgalts’ap (Greenville). It is the latest addition to the DriveBC network of safety features geared to let drivers see current road and weather conditions before travelling.
“This is the first Web cam on the Nisga’a Highway 113,” said Shirley Bond, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister.”The camera will show the residents of the Nass Valley the real-time road conditions and allow them to make better informed and safer driving choices, especially during this cold spell. As well, this new Web cam will make travel safer for the many commercial suppliers who regularly travel to the communities of Gingolx, Laxgalts’ap, Gitwinksihlkw and New Aiyansh.”
The camera is located on the Nisaga’a Highway 113, facing east from the Greenville Bridge in Laxgalts’ap. The area is often hit by major winter storms and is subject to many freeze and thaw cycles.
