Access road information and maps helpful

Free BCHighways app makes driving safer and easier

Easy to access roadway information and maps will make it much easier for motorists planning their daily commute with a new, free BCHighways app that uses information from DriveBC.

Created by AirSenze Solutions, BCHighways provides real-time access to provincial highway information, including road closures, planned work and extreme weather conditions.

The free app also features estimated border-crossing wait times, traffic camera images and integrates DriveBC’s Twitter feed.

BCHighways is not intended to be used while driving; anyone wanting to use it, or any other app on the go, must find a safe place to stop their vehicle first.

Using any electronic handheld device while driving is prohibited under B.C.’s distracted-driving law.
