Mobility Committees

Safety and Mobility Policy Advisory Committee

The Safety and Mobility Policy Advisory Committee (SMPAC) brings system users into the high-level policy development process, knowing that better business results from better policy.
 
The Committee represents the evolution of safety and mobility policy for ODOT. Specifically, this committee builds upon the previous efforts of the Work Zone Executive Strategy Sessions Committee (WZESSC) and provides policy oversight for the Oregon Mobility Advisory Committee (MAC).

Oregon Mobility Advisory Committee

Stakeholder involvement in project development and implementation is an important part of ODOT’s commitment to keeping freight and traffic moving safely and efficiently throughout Oregon.

The MAC consists of key stakeholders including members from the Oregon Trucking Association, Association of General Contractors, Oregon Manufactured Housing Association, American Automobile Association and freight haulers from the heavy haul industry. 

The Committee advises ODOT on potential reduction in capacity impacts (ORS 366.215) and collaborates among diverse stakeholders to resolve mobility issues or concerns.

View MAC meeting agendas, documents and minutes on the Mobility Records page.

In addition, the MAC should be involved in the following:

 

​If a route identified on the Critical Route Pairs List in the Mobility Procedures Manual needs to be restricted, ODOT will take steps to ensure the paired route on the list is not restricted.

​It is the policy of ODOT to work collaboratively with the motor carrier industry and local governments to minimize the impact of restricting the allowable size and weight of loads on state highways to maintain safe travel.

State Highways Policy — Size and Weight Restrictions.

​Policies defined in the Mobility Procedures Manual, Operational Notice PD-16, and ODOT's Work Zone Safety Guiding Principle Directive require coordination with the ODOT Statewide Mobility Program and the Mobility Committees throughout project development and construction. This includes any proposed changes to the Traffic Control Plan during construction or concerns regarding delays of traffic and restrictions on lane width and vertical clearance. A Traffic Management Plan and Work Zone Decision Tree shall be provided to the Mobility Team to share with the Mobility Committees when necessary.

When considering a roundabout on the state highway system, follow ODOT procedures to address the needs and concerns of all stakeholders. Contact the Mobility Team to determine if the roundabout can accommodate freight movement.
