Oregon Over-Dimension Permit System Replacement Project

The Countdown Begins!

We are happy to announce that our new online over-dimension permitting system will launch May 2025. Our new Oregon Routing Information Online – or ORION – is a web-based over-dimension permitting system that provides new and exciting features for carriers.

ORION is a self-service permitting system that will provide you with better access to the permits you need, when you need them. This new, modernized system is just one way we are stepping up to better meet the needs of our customers. ORION will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing immediate access to routine permits.

This user-friendly system will:
  • Improve safety by reducing the risk of errors.
  • Provide automated routing for trip planning and Single-Trip Permits.
  • Increase ODOT’s ability to meet changing needs.
  • Decrease wait times for getting your over-dimension permits.
Oregon will be joining 44 other states, including many of our neighboring states, who have already implemented similar systems. Bookmark this page as the primary source for all project updates leading up to launch.

  • Online self-service system – request your own permits 24/7, 365 days per year.
  • Improved turnaround time – have routine permits issued within minutes.
  • Increased safety and compliance – automated routing capabilities will provide the most efficient and safe route, taking into account known road and bridge restrictions and closures.
  • Enhanced communication – receive notifications of road closures impacting a route in which you hold an existing permit.
  • Improved customer service – allow ODOT staff to focus on more complex permitting requests.

Regular information regarding project progress will be available on this page and targeted outreach will occur in other venues as appropriate.


External Stakeholder Groups

We have established several groups to solicit input and help plan for user testing and implementation. Please click below for more information on the work being done with these groups.

​An External Project Advisory Committee (PAC) was established in late 2021 to provide a forum for external stakeholders to inform decision-making regarding the implementation of the online permitting system. The group will advise ODOT on industry needs, perceptions and messaging, as well as communicate project updates to the communities they represent. The PAC will meet quarterly and will be facilitated by a public engagement consultant.

​Oregon counties are critical partners in issuing OD permits across the state. Two venues exist to discuss OD Permitting topics relevant to the implementation of a new system and their impacts to counties. All counties are invited to a Quarterly Forum to keep up to date with critical project information and to inform decision-making. Representatives from seven counties meet monthly between County Forums to dive deeper into issues that need resolution. Together, these groups will be working with the OD Permit Project Team to ensure a smooth transition to the new system for our mutual customers.

The Third-Party Agent (TPA) Working Group will initially meet bi-monthly, but cadence may be adjusted depending on needs of the project and critical milestones. The group was formed in May 2022 with representatives from each of the five third-party agents contracted by ODOT to issue Annual Permits.

What and Why

We have contracted with ProMiles, a leading provider of over-dimension permit systems, to develop ORION, our new comprehensive over-dimension permitting system. The implementation of this system is a priority in our ODOT’s Strategic Action Plan and will provide dramatic improvements in over-dimension permitting in Oregon.

Latest News

Work to configure ORION to meet Oregon’s needs began in January 2024 and will continue through Fall 2024. The project team continues to engage internal and external stakeholders to ensure requirements are clear and that intended benefits of the new system are fully realized. 

Plans are in the works to:
  • Streamline restriction notifications.
  • Simplify permit options.
  • Improve communication with permit holders.
