BC HighwayCams Give a Glimpse of a Wet Start to Summer

Tomorrow is the first day of summer, but you might not guess it by looking at most of the BC HighwayCams across the province this morning. Lots of rain, fog and even some snow. Highways 1, 31, and 31A have been impacted by high water levels. Here is a snapshot of the last day of spring 2013 in B.C., courtesy of DriveBC.

So, here’s to summer and hoping that all this rain keeps B.C. green and beautiful – well into the coming summer months. And remember, if you are travelling somewhere this summer, or anytime of the year, it pays to be prepared – Check DriveBC and know before you go!

      Hi Bertha,

      Our friends in Alberta Transportation have a great site here: http://511.alberta.ca/ which should give a good idea of road conditions to the border. Our DriveBC site has a plan your route feature which you might find helpful. http://www.drivebc.ca/directions.html and don’t forget to check our webcams along the way as well. Safe travels!

    Why is it so difficult for me to find the Summit Lake web cam?

      This one? http://images.drivebc.ca/bchighwaycam/pub/html/www/100.html
      It is located on Hwy 97 at Summit Lake Rd, about 33 km north of Prince George, looking north. You can find it from the DriveBC homepage under BC HighwayCams and then clicking on the Northern Region (NR) tab.
      We recently put together a series of tutorial videos to help users navigate the map feature on DriveBC
      Hope that these help!

        Hi Ray,
        I’m going to assume you mean the Coquihalla cam (please correct me if I’m wrong). We do have challenges with this webcam from time to time based on where it’s located but it’s been working for a while now. Sorry if there was any interruption. http://drivebc.ca/mobile/pub/webcams/id/379.html
        As to your other remark, could you be a little more specific as to your concerns?
