Oregon Toll Program

On March 11, 2024, Gov. Tina Kotek directed ODOT to stop work on the Regional Mobility Pricing Project. She also directed ODOT to pause additional work to implement tolls on the I-205 Abernethy Bridge so that the legislature can further evaluate and provide clearer direction on tolling. With this direction, we have stopped building the Oregon Toll Program and are working with our legislative partners to identify sustainable funding solutions to improve our state's roads, bridges and multimodal transportation system.

Tolling remains a critical component of funding the Interstate Bridge Replacement Program, and toll collection will be transferred to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

History of the Oregon Toll Program

Tolling became an active part of our statewide transportation discussions in 2016 and 2017, when the 2016 Transportation Vision Panel Report to former Gov. Kate Brown presented significant concern about the statewide economic impacts from congestion in the Portland metro area. Over the course of seven years, we worked to establish a modern and equitable toll program based on community input. Learn about some of the highlights of our toll work.

Long-term, sustainable funding

Current transportation revenue cannot meet the state's current needs. Tolling was envisioned as a tool to sustainably raise revenue for projects that will make it easier to walk, bike and take transit in the Portland metro region. We look forward to working with our partners, communities across the state, and the legislature to identify equitable, sustainable and resilient funding solutions to put our transportation system on a solid foundation.
