Many projects that Transportation Planning is responsible for completing come via legislative direction. These projects are often large scale policy or program issues and require extensive public involvement and coordination. Projects that have not completed the required work can be found through this page. Completed projects are often located under Plans and Guidance, or Rules, Policies and Procedures. Current initiatives include: Oregon Sustainable Transportation Initiative, Oregon Industrial Development and Least Cost Planning.
Transportation Planning works with a number of diverse committees to help advise work on the projects and programs that we are responsible for. On this page you will be able to find information related to the work of these committees including membership lists, a meeting calendar, past and present agendas and minutes, and more. This page will also provide links to some of the other committees the department collaborates with on a regular basis.
The Planning Section hosts a variety of funding programs such as ConnectOregon and Transportation and Growth Management (a joint program with the Department of Land Conservation).
The Section consists of four different units: Freight Transportation, Transportation Programs, Transportation Planning, and Transportation Planning and Analysis.
For personal travel the most common modes are automobile, aviation, bicycle, pedestrian movement, rail and transit. Common freight transportation modes include aviation, rail, truck, watercraft and pipeline. Planning for a multimodal transportation system is documented in the Oregon Transportation Plan and in statewide modal and topic plans.
