Federal Funding May Diminish in the Next Few Months

Absent Congressional action, the federal Highway Trust Fund is expected to have insufficient cash to pay all of its bills in the near future. While ODOT expects to be able to keep active projects, including local government’s federally funded projects, going for some period of time, projects slated to get underway in 2015 may be impacted. Read more about the impacts of this situation.

Federal Surface Transportation Reauthorization

The current surface transportation act, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, or MAP-21, expires on September 30, 2014. ODOT is working with stakeholders and Oregon’s congressional delegation on issues that affect the state’s surface transportation system.

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21)

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, also known as MAP-21, authorizes federal highway, transit and safety programs through September 30, 2014. The bill makes significant changes to federal surface transportation programs and policies.
