Live webcam for mini-roundabouts in St. James in place through March 2018

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) will be temporarily recording and streaming live footage of the recently constructed mini-roundabouts in St. James with a traffic webcam. The webcam will be live from January to March 2018, and will be used to monitor traffic flow and performance during winter weather conditions.

During Hwy 4 construction in summer 2017, mini-roundabouts were constructed to replace traffic signals at the intersections of 1st Avenue S and Armstrong Boulevard N and 1st Avenue S and 7th Street S. A webcam has been placed near the intersection of 1st Avenue S and Armstrong Boulevard N and directed at the mini-roundabouts.

Construction on Hwy 4 through St. James will begin again in May 2018, and will include the sidewalk and roadway reconstruction north of 8th Avenue N, as well as address unfinished work and additional updates throughout the project area. During this time, traffic will be detoured to County Rd 56 (1st Avenue) and County Rd 55 around the construction area.

To view the live webcam of the mini-roundabouts, visit app.truelook.com/?u=ss1514233905. For more information on the Hwy 4 construction project in St. James and summer 2018 traffic impacts, visit dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/hwy4stjames/.
