Which Ohio roadways and interstates does Ohgo report on?
Ohgo reports road activity, speeds, incidents, travel times, closures, and winter road conditions for all of Ohio’s Highways.
How timely is the traffic speed in Ohgo? How often is the data updated?
Ohgo receives updated traffic speed data from remote sensors approximately every
minute. The sensors provide average speeds for each direction of the roadway. They
do not report individual speeds and are not used for law enforcement. The speeds
are color-coded and represented on the speed display map.
Why does the traffic speed display sometimes contain gray areas?
In some cases, Ohgo may be unable to receive traffic speed data from one or more
remote traffic speed sensors. If Ohgo does not have enough traffic speed data to
calculate the average speed of a roadway segment, the segment displays as gray.
Gray segments are usually temporary.
