ORS 366.215 states the Oregon Transportation Commission may not permanently reduce the vehicle-carrying capacity of an identified freight route. Specific exceptions to this prohibition are allowed by statute. The documents on this webpage are provided to support the implementation of ORS 366.215.
Local and regional agencies conducting planning, design or project development on state highways should contact a highway region office to initiate the ORS 366.215 review.
ODOT is currently developing an Administrative Rule to support implementation of the parts of ORS 366.215 related to permanent reductions of the vehicle-carrying capacity of identified freight routes. Additional information is available at the Freight Route Capacity Rulemaking website.
