AAA predicts that 1.8 million Ohioans will travel this 4th of July weekend! That’s an increase of 2.3% over last year and marks the highest 4th of July travel volume on record. If you’re traveling Ohio’s highways and local roads this weekend, keep the traffic conditions in mind and stay safe. Some new technology from the Ohio Department of Transportation can help you do so.
You can avoid traffic tie-ups during the holiday by using ODOT’s new mobile app – OHGO – for personal traffic alerts, information on road construction and travel delays, and hands-free voice on the go. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play. The OHGO app is definitely worth checking out, not only for the July 4th weekend, but to stay informed about traffic conditions throughout the year. An ODOT news release has more information including a list of current state highway projects that could impact your travel. Thanks to ODOT for creating handy app that will help motorists throughout Ohio.
Happy 4th of July to everyone! Buckle up, don’t drink and drive, enjoy the holiday and stay safe!
