Types of ODOT Owned Property


Property owned by ODOT can be divided into two categories:

  • Project Related Property is part of an active highway construction or improvement project. Information about this type of property is available through regional right of way offices located in Salem, Portland, Roseburg, Bend, and LaGrande.
  • Non-Project Related Property is not part of an active highway project. It falls into two classes:

Operating Property is occupied by completed highway construction or improvement projects, such as roadways or airports. It also may be the site of active stockpiles or quarries, or of maintenance, office or administrative structures. It is not for sale. Sometimes property may seem to be unused, but may be needed for future use such as road widening, intersection improvement, landslide correction and scenic setbacks. The department will not sell property needed for future transportation or public safety projects.

Non-operating ("excess") Property may no longer be needed by ODOT. Once the department has determined property is no longer needed, it is classed as surplus property and can be sold.
