Why has the city of Wilmington discontinued access to the traffic cameras?

“The camera views are a good tool for gauging traffic congestion on our major roads,” city spokeswoman Malissa Talbert said.

Talbert said the views are currently unavailable because the N.C. Department of Transportation “is working to resolve some technical issues with the system.”

When they are restored, Talbert said access to all local traffic cameras will be available at www.wilmingtonnc.gov/quick_links/residents/traffic_cameras.

“This links to the DOT cameras,” she said.

A second service that used to be available will not be restored because the provider, trafficland.com, no longer serves the Wilmington area, Talbert said.


Is there a way to view past traffic on the traffic cameras in Wilmington?

Can I see video from the traffic camera at the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge?

    The traffic web-cams in Wilmington have been turned off for quite some time now. Evidently there is an issue with the cams,judging from what I’ve been reading in ‘My Reporter’ It seems as if Ms Talbert is providing incorrect information on a alternate choice for cams. What is the real problem here…
    Lets really find out what the problem is !
