New online project tracking map helps public see transportation investments
To help provide the public better information about where their transportation dollars are being put to work, ODOT has rolled out an interactive online map that provides information about projects included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
The map shows projects around the state that are in design and under construction, as well as those that have been completed in the past year. Users can view projects statewide or zoom in to a selected city, county, state or federal legislative district, or Area Commission on Transportation to view all the projects in that area.
The first iteration of the map includes information about the scope, schedule and budget of projects in the STIP, ODOT’s four-year capital improvement program. OTIA III Bridge Program projects, State Radio Program projects, emergency repairs, rail and transit projects, and city and county managed projects are not included at this time. Future versions of the map may expand and update the information to get closer to the goal of creating a centralized location for ODOT project information.
What you will find on the map
- The map includes transportation projects in the design (blue dots), construction (yellow dots), or recently completed phase (green dots).
- Project information includes project name, description, cost, location and bid date, start date or completion date (depending on the current phase of the project).
- Drop down menus allow users to filter the map by geographical area (city, county, region), legislative or congressional districts, or by Area Commission on Transportation boundaries.
- The base map can shift between street, terrain or aerial views.
- A “Help” feature offers tips on how to use the map’s tools to find information.
