COLUMBUS, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Ohio Department of Transportation launched a new website Tuesday designed to provide motorists with real-time travel information using state-of-the-art technology on Ohio's roadways.
Ohgo.com was developed for multiple user platforms, including mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers. The purpose is to provide the latest traveler information to help motorists get to where they are going safer, faster, and easier than ever.
"The price we pay for sitting in traffic is significant. It's time away from our families and money spent on wasted fuel," explained ODOT Director Jerry Wray. "Ohgo.com will allow motorists to log on, look for traffic tie-ups and pick the best route, saving both time and money."
Ohgo.com is interactive and will allow users to see up-to-the-minute travel information about:
Current highway traffic speeds
Traffic accidents, slowdowns, and tie-ups
Travel times from one location to another
Road construction, closures and delays
Traffic cameras to view current travel conditions as they happen
Winter road conditions available from November through April each season
Future updates to Ohgo.com may allow motorists to map their daily commute and receive electronic updates when accidents, slowdowns or closures occur. No timeframe is set for the launch of future updates at this time.
Ohgo.com is more user-friendly and officially replaces BuckeyeTraffic.org.
