TRAFFIC HUB: Links to cameras and maps of Abbotsford’s traffic situation

We’ve collected a handful of helpful links to help you plan your commute or weekend travel

Highway 1 is unpredictable. Sometimes traffic sails along and you can get to Vancouver or Chilliwack within the hour. And sometimes it’s a complete gong show.

We’ve collected a whole bunch of traffic links here. Bookmark this page, or just check back before you hit the road.

Google Traffic Map

Google uses information from users phones (yes, a little creepy) to measure the speed of traffic and whether it’s moving as quickly as possible.

DriveBC

The province’s Ministry of Transportation runs a pair of Twitter feeds that post the very latest on traffic accidents and road closures. A must-check before you head out on the Coquihalla.

BC Highway Cameras

The province has a network of cameras pointed at Highway 1 and other major routes. In Abbotsford’s core, there are cameras at Sumas Way, McCallum Road, Clearbrook Road, and Mt. Lehman Road. There are also cameras near Bradner Road and Cole Road.

City of Abbotsford Cameras

There are cameras on Bradner Road, No.5 Road, near Ledgeview Golf Course, at Fire Hall No. 3 on Fraser Highway, at Eagle Mountain Park, and on Blueridge Drive.
