  • Interested in participating in OReGO?
    RUC174.jpgOReGO is Oregon’s Road Usage Charge Program. Our state is pioneering a usage based charge to replace the state gas tax at myOReGO.org. After two pilot projects in 2007 and 2012, the Oregon Legislature passed a law in 2013 to conduct a 5,000 vehicle volunteer program implementing a per-mile charge as an alternative to the gas tax. This volunteer program starts July 1, 2015. Sign up for the interest list today.

Seasonal Road & Driving Information 

New Biggs Jct 4 werb.jpgJust ahead of Memorial Day Weekend, ODOT is making travel safer and smoother on Interstate 84 near The Dalles by opening lanes that had been closed for construction.
Three projects in, near and within driving distance of The Dalles are in the process of making way for travelers over the weekend and beyond.  They include rebuilding the concrete highway within the city limits, repaving the highway from Celilo to Rufus, and making improvements to aid truck and motorist travel at the Biggs Junction intersection of I-84 and US97.
Each of these projects will be re-opening to two lanes of travel in both directions on the freeway, plus provide improved circulation at the Biggs Junction intersection where ODOT has added lanes and signals.
As a result, motorists can expect smoother travels through these construction areas on the highway, especially during the Memorial Day Holiday crush.  However, ODOT does suggest planning additional time for Memorial Day Holiday driving and visiting Tripcheck.com for the latest information.
A formal inauguration of the Biggs Junction project is set for Saturday, June 13.
