New ODOT Website Helps Show The Way
The Ohio Department of Transportation has unveiled a new web tool to help drivers avoid traffic jams and road closures.
The first place Ohio drivers turn to for help is often not ODOT. But the transportation agency hopes to help drivers navigate through six big Ohio cities and throughout the state with a new website, ohgo.com.
The site features maps with travel times, road speeds, construction information, traffic alerts and winter road conditions from November through April. ODOT project manager Todd Wolfhurst says itâ€™s a revamp of ODOTâ€™s old traffic website buckeyetraffic.org.
The information on the site comes from road sensors, traffic cameras, weather-monitoring services and reports that come in to ODOTâ€™s central office headquarters. The state spent 260-thousand dollars to change the websiteâ€™s name and add the features, which ODOT says are more up to date and accurate than those provided by other websites or apps.
