Real-Time Traffic Cameras

DOT's Traffic Management Center, located in Long Island City, Queens, receives feeds from closed circuit television cameras trained on major arteries, allowing operations staff to track traffic conditions at key locations in the City.

DOT's traffic cameras can be seen on NYC Drive on NYC TV, on Channel 72 on Cablevision and Time Warner Cable, Channel 79 on RCN, and Channel 28 on Verizon FIOS, all day, every day.

Access these cameras to view real-time traffic movements from the Advanced Traveler Information System, which provides frequently updated still images from locations in the five boroughs.

The cameras are being used by DOT staff to monitor traffic conditions, and may be repositioned to view traffic from varying directions. You may see different views if you visit a camera location at different times.

From time to time, cameras may be out of service because of construction, weather conditions, or mechanical or electrical failure. These cameras will be restored to service as soon as possible.

For updated information and links to other cameras, see Real Time Traffic Information from 511NY, New York State's official traffic and travel info source. In addition, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates many of the bridges and tunnels in New York City, has several camera feeds.
