Your view of traffic at is now even more current


By Steve Elliott / ADOT Communications 

Your view of traffic is even more current these days via ADOT's freeway cameras in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.

ADOT has changed how frequently these camera images refresh on from every 10 seconds to every five seconds. The views above, from our cameras along eastbound Interstate 10 at Wild Horse Pass, show how the view changes every five seconds.

CaptureWhen you call up a Phoenix- or Tucson-area traffic camera at, a note at the bottom now tells you that the image updates every five seconds for three minutes. Our goal is giving you a view that's as close to real-time as possible.

It's one more way that we're continuously improving the value of In September, we highlighted the addition of camera images along I-10 west of Loop 101 and I-17 north to Anthem, along with new high-definition cameras in the I-10 Deck Park Tunnel. In May, began offering a view from cameras in the farthest reaches of the Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway in the East Valley. 

These cameras provide ADOT traffic operators and Arizona State Troopers with current views of traffic conditions and traffic incidents in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. They aren't used to enforce traffic laws, and ADOT doesn't record from them.

Traffic cameras are there for the public as well, and we hope you will make use of them as you plan your freeway travel.
