The Diamond Bar City Council approved this week the purchase of ten closed circuit television cameras for the monitoring of traffic conditions and traffic signal operations.
The city council unanimously approved the $74,062.50 purchase at Tuesday's meeting.
The cameras are being funded through Prop C funds, according to a Dec. 13 city staff report recommending the purchase. In total, the project will cost $117,662.50, including installation, with $115,000 coming from the appropriation of Prop C funds, the staff report stated.
Currently, the city has eight of these cameras up around town, which provide a real-time video feed to the city's traffic management center.
"Additional locations were proposed/selected because they are heavily traveled arterial intersections or locations that received significant school area traffic," the staff report says.
Eight of the ten cameras will be installed at the following locations (two will be used for spares) "... for continuous monitoring of traffic conditions and traffic signal operations.":
- Diamond Bar Blvd and Mountain Laurel Way
- Diamond Bar Blvd. and Sugar Pine
- Diamond Bar Blvd and Sunset Crossing
- Golden Springs Drive and Ballena Drive
- Golden Springs Drive and Copley Drive
- Golden Springs Drive and Sunset Crossing Road
- Grand Avenue and Shotgun Lane
- Pathfinder Road and BCY-Fern Hollow
A timeline for the purchase and installation wasn't immediately available.
