OHGO API Introduction

Welcome to the OHGO API

ODOT's mission is to provide drivers with the safest roads we possibly can.

In addition to road maintenance, travel, infrastructure improvements, fighting weather conditions, and monitoring traffic patterns, we believe that empowering people with information about their commute is one of the best ways is one of the best ways to accomplish this.

To that end, ODOT reports current road activity, speeds, incidents, travel delays, closures, and severe weather conditions for all of Ohio’s Highways.

The API allows you to view up-to-date information about ODOT-managed roadways throughout Ohio.

The data we offer is updated up to every minute to provide users with a real time experience.
