New Philadelphia, Ohio
- Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 11 will be installing a 90
ft. pole for a traffic camera tomorrow at the I-77/U.S. 250 interchange in New
Philadelphia. This traffic camera is the first camera to be installed
in Tuscarawas County and one of more than 600 cameras statewide.
The pole will
be placed along West High Ave. (SR 39) between the I-77 north and
southbound lanes. During installation, the eastbound curb lane of West
High Ave. (SR 39) will be restricted to one lane between the hours of 9
a.m. and noon.
The camera is expected
to be installed in the next couple of weeks.
The purpose of the
traffic camera is strictly to monitor traffic in ODOT’s Traffic Management
Center (TMC), located in Columbus. The TMC is managed 24/7 to provide real time
traveler information through OHGO.com
and the OHGO app.
Here are some of the
features OHGO has to offer:
- Over 600 Traffic cameras
- Real time freeway traffic
- Real time work zone locations
- Weather conditions
- Travel delays
- Personalized route alerts
Once the camera is installed,
motorists will be able to view the camera from OHGO.com
or the OHGO app.
The traffic cameras are exclusively for monitoring traffic conditions.
The cameras do not measure speed and therefore are not used for any type of
