Using the Transportation Project Tracker

About the Transportation Project Tracker

The interactive Transportation Project Tracker shows how and where Oregon's state and federal transportation funds are spent by local, state and federal agencies. You'll find information about the scope, schedule and budget of projects and studies, including projects in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program known as the STIP, ODOT's four-year capital improvement program. You can learn more about projects funded by Keep Oregon Moving (HB 2017) on our website.

Location information

Cluster of projects on a map

Project locations are clustered in high density areas on the map. Zoom in to see additional location details. When you click on points or lines on the map, the Projects list updates to include projects at that location. The list of projects will include both points and lines in the selected area. Click on a name in the project list to see a project’s details, including a written description of the location.

The map does not display some projects with a point or line because they benefit a larger area and do not have a specific geographic location. For example, public transportation bus purchases, freight planning studies, and other non-construction projects are not mapped. The Projects list labels mapped projects.

Budget information

The Transportation Project Tracker shows the best available budget information, including project cost (the project's cost at completion), estimated cost and amount spent-to-date. Spent-to-date information is not available for projects where ODOT does not directly pay for the work, such as some local projects. We update available budget information daily.

Example project budget information

Schedule information

The Transportation Project Tracker shows the best available schedule information, including completion date, estimated completion date or the date on which the project will be available for contractors to bid ("Goes to bid"). Some projects do not have detailed date information available and we show a year instead of a specific date. For example, we may not have details on the project schedule when a city or county manages a project. We update available schedule information daily.

Performance information

When ODOT's construction projects in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program are completed, we calculate whether they were completed on-time and on-budget. This data is available for projects that have had all on-site work completed within the last year. We display project information for one year after financial closure and we update this information once per quarter.

A project is considered "on-time" if all on-site work was satisfactorily completed within 90 days of the last baselined contract completion date.

A project is considered "on-budget" if total construction expenses are less than or equal to 110% of the baselined construction budget.

Example project performance information

While the project may be listed after roadway work is finished, complete budget information will not be available until all contract administrative work, vegetation establishment, and other non-roadway aspects are finished, which sometimes takes several months.

Contract completion dates and budgets are sometimes adjusted without penalty for:

  • Elective expansion of project scope by ODOT or the local funding agency
  • New requirements or interpretations from regulatory agencies
  • Unavoidable impacts due to natural events
  • Elective contract changes

Contract completion dates and budgets are not adjusted for:

  • Avoidable errors in plans, specifications, or design
  • Unacceptable traffic impacts
  • Construction engineering errors
  • Avoidable contract changes

More information about ODOT's performance is available on our Key Performance Measures web page.

Phase information

Example project phase information

Projects in the planning phase include plans or studies for future projects. Projects in the design phase may be funded through pre-construction or construction. Design projects that are funded through pre-construction may include buying land, moving utilities or completing final plans.

Projects in the construction phase are typically under construction. Sometimes projects in the construction phase have not yet started on-site work or on-site work was recently completed. Projects labeled as completed may be open to traffic with minor on-site work continuing. Projects labeled with an "Other" phase include non-construction projects such as transit operations funding, technology upgrades and administrative costs for various transportation programs.

Type information

The Transportation Project Tracker includes many different kinds of projects. Users may filter projects by type. Projects may include more than one type of work. Examples of project types include Americans with Disabilities Act, bicycle/pedestrian, bridge, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality, culvert, emergency relief, environmental, special programs, maintenance, preservation, modernization, operations, planning, safety and transit.

Example project type information

Administrator information

Project administrators are responsible for the contract and delivery of a project. The Oregon Department of Transportation administers many of the projects in the Transportation Project Tracker. Other government agencies also administer a significant portion of projects. Other administrators include local governments, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, the Idaho Department of Transportation, The Washington Department of Transportation and the Western Federal Lands Highway Division of the Federal Highway Administration. Users can filter by administrator and see project-level administrator after selecting a specific project.

Detailed metadata for the data in the Transportation Project Tracker is available for both the points and lines on the map. The points, lines and non-mapped project data underlying the Transportation Project Tracker is available via web services. Please contact us if you plan to use this data so that we can notify you of any upcoming changes to the data structure.
