  • April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

    On average, a distracted driver crash occurs in Oregon every 2.5 hours.

    Join us this April in a year round pledge to ditch the distractions and focus on driving when you are behind the wheel. The time to end distracted driving in Oregon is now.

    Start today by taking these simple steps to improve the safety of all our road users. 

  • Speed limits increased on select Central and Eastern Oregon highways
    stack o speed signs.jpgMotorists traveling on some state highways in Central and Eastern Oregon will see a change due to Oregon House Bill 3402. The bill enacted by the 2015 legislature raised the speed limit on Interstate 84 and some other routes east of the Cascades on March 1, 2016.

    With increased speeds, comes increased responsibility. Learn more and see a map of changes here. 

  • Bridge condition report identifies need for stable strategic investment to protect Oregon's economy

    Hole in the concrete on the 1-84 WB bridge in Troutdale last May.The health of Oregon’s bridges directly affects the health of our economy and job market.

    The latest bridge condition report from the Oregon Department of Transportation puts a dollar figure to the cost to Oregon’s economy if the state’s bridge system isn’t adequately maintained: In the next 20 years, Oregon could forfeit $94 billion in production and 100,000 jobs if action isn’t taken.

    The good news: If we act soon, Oregon still has time to keep our bridges healthy. Learn more about the state of our bridges here.
