Travel Planning Made Easier for Highlands Ranch Drivers
County collaborates with CDOT to embed intersection images on COTRIP.ORG site
If you’re one of the thousands of drivers who frequently use major roads within Highlands Ranch and northern Douglas County you now have a new way to evaluate traffic conditions before you travel.
Through a collaboration with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), 33 County intersections have been added to the department’s website. Visit CDOT’s link www.cotrip.org/device.htm, zoom in, and select one of the County’s 33 regularly-updated still cameras in Highlands Ranch and northern Douglas County, as well as 29 CDOT locations along the I-25 and C-470 corridors within Douglas County. Additional locations will likely be added in the near future.
The camera snapshots are updated every 15 minutes, allowing drivers who travel the County’s most frequently-used roadways the ability to scan conditions 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
