Updated April 6 to clarify that two red light cameras already operate at the intersection.

Two new red-light cameras at the intersection of Route 59 and Route 19 in Streamwood will be operational beginning May 1, Streamwood police announced Tuesday.

The new cameras have been placed northbound and eastbound at the intersection, police said. Red-light cameras have been operational southbound and westbound of the intersection for at least five years.


For the next 30 days, warning citations will be issued to violators caught driving through red lights by the two new cameras.

The system captures violations, matches license plates to state records, issues citations and collects fines. All captured violations are reviewed and approved by Streamwood police supervisors before any citations are mailed to the vehicle's registered owner, police said.

The costs of installing and operating the system are being funded by the fines that violators pay to the village, police said.
