As of Sept. 22, the City of Clarksville’s nine street cameras are once again fully operational after a short hiatus due to a need for replacement.
The cameras, four of which the City launched in 2015, and added five more since, were temporarily disabled while replacements were made to modernize and upgrade obsolete systems. The new cameras from Reolink are smaller and provide higher-quality real-time traffic monitoring in compliance with the National Defense Authorization Act.
With all cameras operational, the public will be able to identify major congestion points, accidents, or road closures on any device 24/7, which will allow drivers to adjust travel plans.
“The street cameras are for the public to view real-time traffic and weather conditions,” said City Traffic Engineer Chris Cowan. “They help the community make informed decisions during high congestion areas, and they also help us identify potential infrastructure improvements.”
The cameras are located in these areas throughout the City:
- Exit 4 (Wilma Rudolph Blvd. and I-24)
- Exit 11 (Martin Luther King Blvd. and I-24)
- 2nd St., North and Riverside Dr.
- Martin Luther King Blvd. and Madison St.
- Peachers Mill Rd. and 101st Airborne Division Rd.
- Providence Blvd. and Peachers Mill Rd.
- Wilma Rudolph Blvd. and Forrest Hills Dr.
- Wilma Rudolph Blvd. and Terminal Rd.
- Rossview Rd. and Dunbar Cave Rd.
The public can view the cameras on the City of Clarksville website under Street Cameras. The feeds are not monitored or recorded, as they are not intended to fight crime or be used as reporting tools.
