DelDOT’s Eye Over Indian River Inlet Shows More Than Traffic

DelDOT’s Traffic Camera On The north Tower Of The Indian River Inlet Bridge Shows Beach, Weather, Water and Traffic Conditons at The Indian River Inlet

If you don’t us the DelDOT app on your phone to pay attention to the traffic cameras, you should.  Especially these days, I constantly see posts on locals pages asking if the Indian River Inlet bridge is closed.  Anyone could answer that question before, with the three DelDOT traffic cameras already on the north and south sides of the bridge. The souuth tower has a traffic camera as well.

DelDOT has upped their traffic camera game on the Charles W Cullen Bridge.  With access to a new traffic camera on the north tower, and it doesn’t just give you traffic conditions.

  Not only is there a great bird’s eye view of the road conditions on the indian river inlet bridge, but this camera could be considered an ultimate spot burn.  You can see the water on both sides of the Charles W. Cullen bridge.  Viewers can see the water conditions, the surf and beach conditions, how many people are in the campground and on the northside beach, how many cars in the parking lot, and how many people are fishing the entire inside wall on the north side.  From the point inside near the handicap access pier to the bulkhead at the Indian River Coast Guard Station.

One can also see a decent portion of that side of the inlet, judge boat traffic, and watch the boats go in and out of the inlet all day long.  Next I will have to see how a sunset looks from this traffic camera.  Find the DelDOT app in the Google play store, and you can access the cameras on DelDOT’s website.

The view at night is cool.  The red lights flash and then the screen is glowing blue from the cable lights.  Then the red flashes again and fills the screen. During the day you can the vehicles on the bridge and off into the distance a bit.  You can also see the edge of the top of the south tower. This perspective gives you more of a real sense of the bridge’s height.

Today I was checking the delDOT north tower traffic camera to get a idea of the beach conditions. There was a van stopped in the middle of the bridge and traffic was stopped for whatever reason.  So the next time you see someone on social media asking if the bridge is closed, send them to the delDOT traffic camera on the north or south tower.  If you screen shoot what you see on the app screen, you can blow that up and see some decent detail in the background.

Fish On!
