Two new reports, the Seismic Plus report and the Rough Roads Ahead report, provide detailed information about the challenges we face and offer suggestions for addressing those challenges.

  • Interested in participating in Oregon’s Road Usage Charge program?
    RUC174.jpgOregon has been exploring a new funding system – a usage-based charge – to replace the gas tax. After two pilot projects in 2007 and 2012, legislation was voted into law on July 9, 2013 to conduct a 5,000 vehicle volunteer program implementing a per-mile charge as an alternate to the gas tax. This volunteer program will start on July 1, 2015. Learn how you can participate.
