Caltrans Highway 50 Streaming Traffic Cameras - From EDH to SLT
Updated: Jan 11
Caltrans has both still and streaming CCTV cameras positioned along the U.S. Highway 50 corridor. The highway is also known as U.S. Route 50, or US-50 for short.
If you are planning to travel from west to east along US-50 — from El Dorado Hills to South Lake Tahoe — the cameras below will inform you about traffic conditions at certain locations along the route.
These are just a few of the over 950 streaming traffic cameras that Caltrans has installed statewide.
Caltrans points out that it does not retain or archive any of the footage that you see below.
