Nebraska will soon offer weather, road condition and other information about Interstate 80, the main east-west route through the state, on the Department of Roads Web site, The Grand Island Independent reported recently.

The information will include camera images from a network that will eventually include 100 cameras on the interstate and other highways. The newspaper reported that 20 of the cameras are being tested now.

"The cameras will be focused on traffic,” Jim McGee, who manages the state agency's intelligent transportation system program, told The Independent. “We are not collecting any personal information, and we are not archiving.”
