Highway Revenues Apportionment​
Highway revenues in the State of Oregon have several major sources:
  • Motor Vehicle Registration and Title Fees;
  • Driver License Fees;
  • Motor Vehicle Fuel Taxes;
  • Weight-Mile Tax.
Net revenues from the above taxes and fees are deposited into an account known as the State Highway Fund. With minor exceptions, the Oregon Constitution (Article IX, Section 3a) dedicates the highway revenues for the construction, improvement, maintenance, operation and use of public highways, roads, streets and roadside rest areas. There are several statutory provisions that distribute State Highway Fund revenues (Oregon Revised Statutes - Chapter 366). These are:
  • ORS 366.739, distributing revenue raised by taxes and fees in effect prior to 2001.
  • ORS 366.742, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2001.
  • ORS 366.747 and ORS 366.749, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2003.
  • ORS 366.752, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2009.
  • ORS 367.095, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2017.
The effect of the statutory provisions is summarized below:
59% distribution.

25% distribution based on the vehicle registered in each county (ORS 366.764).

16% distribution based on population in each city (ORS 366.805).

The Oregon Department of Transportation manages multiple bond programs for the State of Oregon, including the Oregon Transportation Investment Act program, the Jobs and Transportation Act program and the lottery-funded ConnectOregon program. Other programs include COP and Article XI-Q GO bond financed facilities projects, and State Highway GO bonds.  The Oregon Department of Transportation's bond programs are generally repaid by either the State Highway Fund – as with Oregon Transportation Investment Act, the Jobs and Transportation Act and most facility bonds – or by Lottery funds. 

State Highway Revenue funded programs include:
Oregon Transportation Investment Act
From 2001 through 2002, the Oregon Legislature approved $500 million in direct revenue bonds for Oregon Transportation Investment Act I and Oregon Transportation Investment Act II modernization and preservation projects.
In 2003, the Oregon Legislature approved an additional $1.9 billion in direct revenue bonds for Oregon Transportation Investment Act III to repair or replace state and local bridges, and for modernization projects
Jobs and Transportation Act 
In 2009, the Oregon Legislature enacted the Jobs and Transportation Act, which among other things, authorized the Oregon Department of Transportation to issue $840 million in direct revenue bonds to finance a specific list of 51 projects set out in the Jobs and Transportation Act.
