Oregon Railroad Hazardous Materials Transportation Rules

ODOT's Rail Division worked with its rulemaking advisory comittee to draft amendments to Division 510 rules relating to the transportation of hazardous materials by rail. This rulemaking modernizes existing rules, establishes the roles and responsibilities for communications and notifications of hazardous materials transport by rail, incident response, and aligns Oregon's rules with federal regulations.
