Watching the weather

weather cam install

The SNJB features a sophisticated weather monitoring system (being installed in the photo) that relays real-time weather conditions on the bridge as well as reports from other local monitored sites. Using this system, SNJB officials can closely monitor the weather conditions on the bridge, including wind speeds, to ensure the safety of travelers. A series of travel restrictions have been established and take effect if the bridge experiences sustained winds of 40 mph or greater. View all SNJB wind restriction guidelines here.
