One Stop Shop (OSS)

The One-Stop-Shop (OSS) web application provides travelers in California, Oregon, Nevada and Washington with comprehensive, real-time data that can be employed in planning their trip. This information consists of both traditional information (routing, imagery, weather, etc.), as well as points of interest and other route-specific information (elevations, rest areas, etc.). The OSS website provides travelers with a web platform that can be reviewed and critiqued. Based on this review and critque, changes, enhancements and so forth will be incorporated during future project phases. Please visit the One-Stop Shop and provide feedback on your experience in using the system. Click here to visit the One Stop Shop. Click here to visit the One Stop Shop.

UPDATE: Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Fire season is here again, and it is hitting close to home. The Carr Fire spread into Redding, California and caused a lot of damage. Our colleagues who work in the Caltrans District 2 Headquarters Building were told not to report to work on July 27th because the fire was very close to their building:

This fire and its impact can be seen in multiple ways in the One-Stop-Shop. State Route 299 was closed to the west of Redding. This was seen in the Google Maps Layer. There were also several CMS messages indicating the closure, along with at least one CHP incident. The Fire Detections layer shows the extent of the fire, which was within the city of Redding at one point. Unfortunately, the Eureka Way CCTV was not showing camera images. This outage was likely due to a power outage in proximity to the fire. One-Stop-Shop users were viewing this CCTV more than any other site July 26th until the outage occurred. Immediately prior to the outage, emergency responders could be seen gathering along the roadway.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast for the next afternoon was of little help, with temperatures approaching 110° F, humidity near 10% and wind gusts of 16 mph. And, Smoke and haze will impact nearly all travel across Northern California and Nevada as well as Southern Oregon for some time to come.

NOTE: This update was written on the afternoon of July 27th, 2018. The Carr Fire had a devastating impact on Redding and the surrounding area on July 26th and July 27th. Much of the impact was still unknown at the time we wrote this.

Be sure to gather as much information as possible from OSS (http://oss.weathershare.org/), Mobile OSS (http://oss.weathershare.org/m) and all available sources before and during trips to plan for safe travel.
