New AZ 511 cameras along SR 95 provide traffic information for Lake Havasu City

Cameras also show glimpses of Lake Havasu itself

Starting from the southernmost camera in Lake Havasu City and heading north along SR 95, the new cameras are located at Acoma Boulevard, Smoketree Avenue, Palo Verde Boulevard, Kiowa Boulevard, Chenoweth Road and The Shops Boulevard.

AZ 511 cameras are primarily for helping drivers see current traffic conditions so they can make informed decisions about travel. However, an added benefit of these new cameras allow visitors to ADOT’s Traveler Information website, AZ511.gov, to catch glimpses of Lake Havasu itself from the Kiowa and Acoma cameras and stunning mountain views from cameras at Chenoweth and The Shops.

These cameras were installed after ADOT updated traffic management technology along a 13-mile stretch of the highway. The technology allows engineers to monitor traffic conditions remotely, adjust signal timing, and diagnose and correct problems.

AZ 511 cameras allow highway supervisors to assess crashes, floods, snow and other issues and respond by sending crews and equipment to mitigate problems. They also allow dispatchers and DPS troopers in ADOT’s Traffic Operations Center to find the locations of crashes and other mishaps and immediately dispatch appropriate personnel.

ADOT now has more than 400 traffic cameras throughout the state, which you can see by going to AZ511.gov and clicking “Cameras” in the menu on the right.
