Officials are keeping a close eye on the roads in the Low Country. Beaufort County Emergency Management is adding more traffic cameras.
They're installing nine new cameras. There are already 26 cameras monitoring US Highway 278 and South Carolina 170. Now they'll see what's happening at Garden's Corner, four intersections along US 21, and other locations.
"We can see where the tie-ups are, the bottlenecks are, we can put additional resources where problems occur and we can see it firsthand," said emergency management spokesman Todd Ferguson.
The new cameras should be up in running by the middle of next month. If you'd like to see the traffic cameras working, visit www.co.beaufort.sc.us/Emerg_mgt/map/Camera_map_main.asp.
