Key Initiatives
ConnectOregon is a lottery-bond-based initiative first approved by the 2005 Oregon Legislature to invest in air, rail, marine and transit infrastructure. This key strategy ensures Oregon’s transportation system is strong, diverse, and efficient. ConnectOregon is focused on improving the connections between the highway system and the other modes of transportation to better integrate the components of the system, improve flow of commerce and remove delays.
Jobs and Transportation Act (JTA) 
House Bill 2001, also known as the Oregon Jobs and Transportation Act, is the transportation funding plan adopted by the 2009 Legislature. Three core themes emerged from the legislation:
  • accountability, innovation and environmental stewardship;
  • highway, road and street funding; and
  • multimodal funding.
Oregon Transportation Investment Act (OTIA) 
Oregonians expect OTIA projects to provide a boost to the state's economy, ensure efficient delivery routes for products and services, and help solve city and county transportation challenges.
State Radio Project 
In 2005 the State Legislature passed HB 2101 to consolidate and upgrade the radio systems used by the Department of Transportation, State Police, the Department of Corrections and the Department of Forestry.
