Oregon Toll Program

ODOT's primary goal is improved travel on I-5 and I-205

With a toll, ODOT helps meet the goal of improved travel by managing traffic flow and helping to raise revenue for infrastructure improvements. The Keep Oregon Moving legislation (House Bill 2017) established a Congestion Relief Fund, which would receive any net proceeds from tolls. The Oregon Constitution (Article IX, Section 3a) specifies that revenues collected from the use or operation of motor vehicles is spent on roadway projects, which could include construction or reconstruction of travel lanes, as well as bicycle and pedestrian facilities or transit improvements in or along the roadway.

Regional Mobility Pricing Project




Workshops lead to local road improvements benefiting Clackamas County communities

As part of ODOT's Urban Mobility Strategy – a cohesive approach to make everyday travel safer and more efficient in the Portland area – our team has collaborated with local governments to plan improvements to local roads.

Improvements will address potential negative impacts resulting from drivers trying to avoid tolls by rerouting to local streets. ODOT and the Federal Highway Administration hosted workshops with local government representatives to talk about improvements and solutions to new transportation issues in communities along I-205.

These improvements and solutions, called “mitigation," are an important part of the project and help make tolling work for everyone. Any mitigation developed with local communities and ODOT is required in order for tolling to move forward.

Public Comment Period is now open through Friday, Jan. 6, 2023

Make your voice heard: Share your feedback during the public comment period to inform a study of congestion pricing on I-5 and I-205. Congestion pricing, using variable rate tolls, is a key tool to reduce traffic congestion and make travel safer and more predictable in the Portland metropolitan area.

Tolling in Oregon – The more you know!

One component of ODOT's Urban Mobility Strategy is to reduce traffic along our highways by implementing congestion pricing with variable rate tolls. ODOT began studying congestion pricing tolls in 2017, and current plans are to start tolling in late 2024. Congestion pricing, also known as “variable rate tolling" – decreases the number of people using the highway at the most congested times, reduces stop-and-go traffic, and provides a more predictable trip at rush hours.

We want to continue to provide information about the system we're planning. ODOT is sharing information through newsletters, in the press, on social media and our website. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out! We always appreciate hearing from you.
