Live Traffic Cameras Now Online
The City of Brentwood’s Technology Department recently completed an upgrade of its live traffic cameras. In all, there are now twenty-one high definition cameras installed from the north end of the city near Interstate 65 to the southern edge.
Brentwood previously had traffic cameras, but with the upgrade added three additional cameras. The cameras are viewable on the city’s website by clicking on the camera icon in the middle of the page. You can then bookmark this page on most mobile devices, but please do not use while driving.
This project cost about $60,000 for the cameras and technology to operate them. Technology Director, John Allman, said “we were able to do this so efficiently for citizens by creating and executing this project with city staff instead of a contractor. Traffic operations and technology team members installed the cameras over the past few months and will maintain them going forward.”
City Commissioner Betsy Crossley said, “This service is so easy to access. If you are at home, you can check the traffic on your laptop or tablet before leaving. If you are already in your car and need traffic info, just pull over and get real time information on your smartphone. It is instant access to your own personal "Brentwood traffic concierge".
