Information Resources

​TripCheck Mobile is a low-bandwidth option with similar information as the flagship site. It can be utilized by older internet enable phones and is text only with the exception of the camera images which are provided at a reduced size.  Visit the website.

​TripCheck TV is a customizable sub-application of the TripCheck website that makes TripCheck information available at a glance.  It's great for public locations such as hotel or office lobbies, and bus stops where travelers are waiting. It provides camera images, road and weather conditions and regional alerts at a glance. Visit the application.

​TripCheck Local Entry provides a more thorough picture of the traffic conditions as drivers transition from state highways onto local roads. TLE is a direct way for local agencies to provide their arterial roads' incident data to the public using TripCheck.

​The TripCheck Traveler Information Portal provides incident and road and weather data, in Extensible Markup Language format at no cost to over 175 public and non-public subscribers which include: traffic information providers, media, weather forecasters and other agencies. In turn, those subscribers reformat and publish the data to web sites, subscription services, traffic graphics for television, radio traffic reports, traffic data for in-vehicle navigation systems and traffic forecasts.

​ODOT also tweets road condition and incidents messages via Twitter. Information is provided by major city, mountain passes and by highway segment.

​ODOT has established a network of roadside devices to collect information directly from the highway (cameras, weather stations, etc.). Some roadside devices are also used to distribute information to motorists as they travel. These devices are Variable Message Signs and Highway Advisory Radios, both of which provide information for a specific incident.

​Nearly 400 roadside cameras are located statewide. Cameras are non-recording and are used by ODOT's maintenance crews and Transportation Operations Center to quickly and efficiently detect, verify, and plan responses for highway incidents and to monitor weather and road conditions at remote locations. The images are also provided to the public through TripCheck to help drivers make more informed travel decisions.

​Variable Message Signs are used to provide information to motorists enroute regarding delays, work zones, travel time estimates, alternative routes, amber alerts, etc.

​Highway Advisory Radio disseminates information via AM radio frequencies to motorists enroute on Oregon's highways.

​511 allows drivers to hear travel information by phone. The information provided via 511 is the same as the data displayed on ODOT's website, TripCheck.com.
