SACRAMENTO – Caltrans announced it has launched Caltrans QuickMap, an online service that provides California truckers with real-time traffic and travel information that will allow them to make better decisions about how to reach their destination more rapidly.

“A wide range of useful information is now easily accessible to help motorists avoid congestion and reduce their travel times,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “This delivers real-time data so travelers can adjust their routes to get where they’re going as quickly as possible.”
Visitors to the online interactive travel map can access nearly 1,000 freeway cameras and more than 700 electronic message signs on highways statewide. They can also monitor traffic congestion, California Highway Patrol incidents, travel time information, lane closures due to highway roadwork, and Amber Alerts.
