HALIFAX - The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal announced Tuesday a camera would be installed on the Colchester County side of the Cobequid Pass, near the Mines Bass River Road overpass.
The first camera over the Pass was installed in Westchester a couple of years ago.
Department highway cameras are attached to Road Weather Information Systems sites with sensors embedded in the road and nearby towers. The sensors collect data on weather conditions affecting the road surface.
The cameras are part of the province's extensive road condition information system, which allows travellers to see weather and road conditions on computers, and to hear road conditions by calling 511. Road conditions can also be accessed on cellphones and hand-held devices via Mobile 511 at
The highway cameras can be viewed at

Organizations: Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, Road Weather Information Systems

Geographic location: HALIFAX, Colchester County, Mines Bass River Road Westchester
