Traffic Watch: Plan your commute

Commuters in Durham have a valuable tool to help them plan their trips.

The Durham Region’s Traffic Watch map is a live, interactive tool that displays issues that are affecting both local and regional roads in the municipality.

“Traffic Watch is a useful tool for residents who are looking to find better routes around Durham by avoiding traffic disruptions,” says Ramesh Jagannathan, director of transportation and field services. “Images from traffic cameras are updated every minute, giving users almost real-time view of traffic flow. This is a great tool for planning your commute.”

The Traffic Watch map includes road closure details; construction information; detours; emergencies; live images from traffic cameras; new traffic signal installations; special events and route congestion.

Users may modify their view of Traffic Watch by choosing the layers they want to see. More info is available at
