Real-Time Traffic Conditions & Cameras

NYC DOT Traffic Management Center

NYC DOT's Traffic Management Center (TMC), located in Long Island City, Queens, receives feeds from closed circuit television cameras trained on major arteries. The TMC receives data from a coalition of transportation and public safety agencies in New York managed by Transcom - allowing operations staff to track live traffic conditions at key locations in the City.
