Oregon’s West Coast Electric Highway

The West Coast Electric Highway is an extensive network of public electric vehicle DC fast charging and Level 2 charging stations along the West Coast, from British Columbia to the California-Mexico border. Charging stations are located every 25 – 50 miles along Interstate 5, U.S. Highway 101, and other major roadways in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California. 

The West Coast Electric Highway was completed in 2013 and is privately owned and operated in the three states and British Columbia. The stations in Oregon are owned and operated by EVCS

Oregon’s portion of the electric highway has 44 EV charging locations along I-5, parts of I-84, U.S. Highway 101 and routes across the Willamette Valley and into Central Oregon. In 2021, EVCS began upgrading each station in Oregon’s West Coast Electric Highway network. The upgrades will add new charger types and upgrade existing ones to serve a wider range of EVs, including e-bikes.

ODOT contributed $4 million in state and federal funds to the project. EVCS plans to finish work in 2023.
