About this app

Get your California traffic information directly from the source. The Caltrans QuickMap app displays a map of your location along with real-time traffic information including:

Freeway speed
Traffic camera snapshots
Lane closures
CHP incidents
Changeable message signs
Chain controls
Snow Plows
Safety Roadside Rest Areas
Border Wait Times
Waze data
County Boundaries

Set which of these options to display and QuickMap will remember your preferences. Zoom to a view of other parts of California with the Location button. Click on traffic camera icons to see a camera image. Click on a CHP, lane closure, changeable message sign or chain control icon to view details for that marker.

Traffic data is updated every few minutes. Load the latest data on the map using the Refresh button.

Something not right with the data displayed on the map? Please send us an email to quickmap@dot.ca.gov rather that letting us know with a low-rated review.

Useful but data is inconsistent. 1) If you enable too many icons they end up on top of each other making it very difficult to find the info you want on the map. 2) Two of us have this app installed and viewing at the same time see different data about the state of a road closure. It's really important that this is accurate. 3) It would be great if I could sign up for a notification if a road closure state changed.

Love it. I'm a daily freeway driver and NEVER go a day without this app. I practically live on it 24/7. Options to pick specific traffic info you want to see is great. Very informative and accurate. The only thing I suggest is to have a dark mode option. The constant bright white is straining on the eyes at night (even with lowering screen brightness on the phone) I get migraines VERY easily so a dark theme would really help at night.

Hi I really like the idea of the App. I would give it 5 but I give it a 3 because it doesn't seem to be updated as often. Today I5 was closed I checked the app and it was reported as closed however the freeway opened at 2pm. This was also updated on the caltrans website but not the app this caused me waste 3 more hrs thinking it was still closed. The quickmap is supposed to be used as a travel guide hence I'd never use it if it's not up to date.

What's new

The My Location feature now works like it did in v2.9.6.
Also, you can now search for a location using the 'Search for location' option on the Location screen -- this was released in 2.9.7, but not mentioned in release notes.
