Got this "Transmission overheating stop safely" notice.

First time poster, but I need some help...

So today I was driving to the Dodger game, in bumper to bumper traffic, going slightly uphill, when I got a notification that read "Transmission overheating" and it said to stop safely for 8 minutes. There was no place for me to safely stop.

Now, I know the DCT is faulty, and, in fact, my car often shudders and makes grinding noises, but this is something I've never experienced so far. I am extremely worried.

I drive a 2014 Ford Focus SE with about 33k miles.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
