Oklahoma Department of Transportation expands Drive Oklahoma app ahead of winter weather

Oklahoma’s transportation and turnpike agencies are gearing up to help keep things moving, with updates to weather and construction notification systems as well as updates to the Oklahoma Drive application for public use.

Advanced traveler notification systems is a critical component of the intelligent transportation system (ITS), said ODOT director Tim Gatz at the ODOT Commissioners meeting in Oklahoma City Monday morning. “It provides real time data,” Gatz said.

Information about current traffic and travelling conditions is available for the entire state, including speed and flow information as well as construction and work zones. The system also includes connectivity to 533 closed circuit cameras positioned around the state, 103 dynamic message boards, and 167 road weather sites.

The interactive mapping system available at oktraffic.org has now been recognized as the best in its class at the ITS 2021 Heartland ITS conference.
