ODOT - Cultural Resources - Podcasts
ODOT strives to maintain transparency and keep the public informed of transportation issues through a variety of media outlets. We have undertaken a modest pilot project to create nearly 20 heritage-related podcasts available for download. This project offers a unique opportunity for our agency to engage the traveling public and increase awareness of cultural and natural resources along our state’s highway.
This type of public outreach provides a special opportunity for a state agency to connect with Oregon residents and national/international visitors. Initial podcasts will focus on the early development of ODOT, impacts of World War II on Oregon’s transportation infrastructure, the historic ferry system, and archaeological resources in Clatsop County. Future podcasts will explore Conde B. McCullough, ODOT’s master bridge designer, balancing cultural resources and transportation needs, the highway park system, and ODOT’s efforts to reestablish natural resources in the Salmon River Estuary.
The goal of the podcasts is not only to connect with the public but also to share the agency’s enthusiasm and interest in creating awareness of Oregon’s unique heritage. We look forward to any comments you would like to share.
