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, October 10th, 2017

A bad fire season just got worse. Even though fires in Montana and other areas in the Northwest have diminished with cooler, wet weather, hot, humid and windy weather in California has caused disastrous fires throughout wine country in California. These fires have had an impact on travel. Numerous incidents, CMS messages, and closures related to these fires were shown in the One-Stop-Shop (http://oss.weathershare.org/) yesterday afternoon, as shown in the following figures:
