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
Truck Weigh Stations
California Truck Networks

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.

If you choose to enable Geotargeted Notifications, this app will monitor your location in the background and alert you (via a Push Notification) to State Highway System road closures occurring near you. Continued use of background location may decrease battery life.

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.

Very useful but a few things could be better. 1) on the caltrans website the same CCTV camera system is used and it is a live real time view, why cant the app also have a real time live view? It only shows a picture and doesn't refresh for minutes even more than 5 sometimes. 2) DARK MODE this can't be understated enough, too much white blinds the eyes

It used to be a 5-star but lately the traffic layer stopped showing up. Also, there is a red circle with dash which has no definition in the legend. If I click on it, nothing happens, so I'm not sure what that is supposed to signify.
