College Station May Add More Red Light Cameras

More red light cameras could soon be popping up around College Station.

The city says it has asked the red light camera vendor to survey about 40 possible College Station intersections. City officials say the vendor will likely do that in the fall, once students return to school.

According to the city's website, the next phase of cameras will be installed at intersections along Texas Avenue and State Highway 6. Texas Avenue carries an estimated 52,000 vehicles per day and intersects four other state roadways each carrying an average of 30,000 vehicles daily. These locations were not included in the initial study because Texas Avenue was under construction.

It could be a while before you see a new red light camera in town, after the vendor makes a selection, it must go before the city council, before it's approved.

Right now there are four intersections in College Station with red light cameras.

They are currently installed at the intersections of:
1) Texas Avenue at Walton Drive
2) Harvey Road at Munson Avenue
3) Harvey Road at George Bush Drive East
4) Wellborn Road at George Bush Drive
