We study the congested transport dynamics arising from a non-autonomous traffic optimization problem. In this setting, we prove one can find an optimal traffic strategy with support on the trajectories of a DiPerna-Lions flow. The proof follows the scheme introduced by Brasco, Carlier and Santambrogio in the autonomous setting, applied to the case of supercritical Sobolev dependence in the spatial variable. This requires both Lipschitz and weighted Sobolev apriori bounds for the minimizers of a class of integral functionals whose ellipticity bounds are satisfied only away from a ball of the gradient variable.
