Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act 2021

A Big Investment in Oregon’s Transportation System

The act includes a five-year reauthorization of existing federal highway, transit, safety and rail programs as well as new programs and increased funding. This is coupled with one-time dollars to substantially increase funding for projects and programs. In total, Oregon will receive at least $4.5 billion over the next five years. This includes over $1 billion in additional federal funding from 2022-26 — a 38% increase, and an additional $200 million in transit funding over that same period — a 35% increase.

These federal funds will help us address many of our most pressing transportation challenges in Oregon. There is new money for electric vehicle charging, active transportation, transit operations and basic maintenance and preservation of our transportation system.

This package symbolizes federal prioritization on climate change; more than we’ve seen historically from federal infrastructure bills. Because of the changes ODOT has made over the last few years, highlighted in our Strategic Action Plan, we are in a very good position to receive additional funding from new competitive grants to modernize our transportation system.

With many of our projects able to go to construction quickly, and others completing the planning stage, we are ready to move quickly.
