Caltrans QuickMap 4+
California Department of Transportation
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
- Highway Information
- Changeable message signs
- Chain controls
- Snow Plows
- County Boundaries
- Border Wait Times
- Safety Roadside Rest Areas
- Waze data
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Helpful app, but seems to be lacking an important feature…
This is a great app for checking road conditions in your area or along rural routes when traveling on vacation. It even allows you to view traffic camera views along routes, which is very neat! However there seems to be a very important feature that this app could use and that is having customer service forms integrated into the app. This can already be accessed via web browser but can be difficult to use at a given moment on the road. With that being said, a more user-friendly hazard-reporting interface inside this app will help those traveling the vast road system quickly report maintenance problems etc. and help keep CAs roads clean and functional!
Good traffic app with room for improvement
Not as useful as the old San Diego real time traffic report which was excellent. This version actually manages to give less information than the RTTR which you could zoom into a single freeway and get a list of actual freeway speeds. This gives you 4 colors instead and doesn’t tell what they mean. You have to guess what red means and exactly where the threshold between red and orange might lie likewise or age to green. Wow! high resolution: 3 bands and some other 4th unknown one. Versus mph list, no contest.
However it is a pretty map, albeit lacking in info vs the old one, so if they add some definition of the colors without me having to google for them plus bring back the old speed list view as an overlay somehow then I’ll give it a five.
