Report on MAP-21's Implications for Oregon
National Highway System Expansion


MAP-21 attempts to standardize the National Highway System (NHS) across states by expanding the NHS to include urban and rural principal arterials, the main thoroughfares that carry most traffic. This expansion added approximately 600 miles of routes to the NHS in Oregon as of October 1, 2012.  About three quarters of the new NHS miles are on state highways operated by ODOT, while about one quarter are on local roads.
