The camera is set up in the median near the intersection of northbound Wisconsin Avenue and Montgomery Lane, directly across from the Bethesda Police Station.
MCPD Traffic Division program manager Dan McNickle said the camera is an upgrade and replacement for a red light camera that was at the intersection. Workers were seen installing the equipment on Friday.
The set-up, which actually consists of two poles with mounted lights and one with a camera, is one of a few in the Bethesda area. There is also a red light camera for the intersection of southbound Wisconsin Avenue at Chelthenham Drive.
