Region 1 STIP

Interstate Bridge at Sunset 
Welcome to the ODOT Region 1 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program – the STIP for short. This is Oregon’s ongoing program for state and federally-funded projects to preserve and develop our state’s road, public transit, bike and pedestrian systems. The STIP outlines our transportation priorities for the next four years, and is updated every two years to keep it current. 

The STIP is managed out of our statewide office. Learn more about the STIP, the process, and regulations and requirements.

Future STIP: 2021-2024

In July 2017, the Oregon Transportation Commission began work on the next STIP, which will provide funds for 2021-2024. The OTC is scheduled to conclude the process with adoption of the 2021-2024 STIP in July 2020. The three-year process involves three steps:
  1. Program allocation: In December 2017, following a six-month process, the OTC approved the allocation of $2.4 billion across programs and regions, as described in a STIP update.
  2. Project selection: ODOT employs a data-driven process to prioritize “Fix-It” programs to maintain assets such as pavements, bridges and culverts and to address safety needs. Watch a video about how ODOT evaluates and prioritizes needs. ODOT staff narrow the lists of possible projects by investigating potential solutions to determine the cost and schedule for each investment. That process, known as “scoping,” took place in late 2018 and early 2019 in Region 1.
  3. Public review and OTC adoption: The OTC’s official public comment period will take place in 2020. In addition, this region-specific website exists to provide stakeholders with the opportunity to provide input starting in February 2019.

Selecting Projects

Development of the STIP must follow statewide funding allocations and project selection guidelines. Program managers coordinate with stakeholders in the region to develop lists of potential projects based on the applicable criteria. Because needs far exceed funding, the program managers begin by identifying “150 percent lists” that include projects worth approximately 150 percent of their anticipated funding levels. 
Draft 150 percent and 100 percent lists are shared with the Region 1 Area Commission on Transportation

2021-2024 STIP Development Update (January 2020)
ODOT has finalized the draft 100 percent list of projects. Projects have been scheduled into design and construction years, and bundled to aid in project delivery. 
ODOT finalized the draft 100 percent list by incorporating Region 1 Area Commission on Transportation, stakeholder and public feedback. 
The Oregon Transportation Commission will manage the formal public comment period that will open in 2020 for the statewide STIP. View an online open house for the 2021-2024 STIP.

Funding Programs


The Fix-It programs fund projects that fix or preserve the state’s transportation system, including bridges, pavement, culverts, traffic signals and others. ODOT uses data about the conditions of assets to choose the highest priority projects. In recent STIP cycles, the Commission has allocated most funding to Fix-It programs.  Watch our video explaining the Fix-It Program. 

Fix-It has six funding programs in the 2021-2024 STIP: 
The All Roads Transportation Safety (ARTS) Program addresses safety needs on all public roads in Oregon. The principle and purpose of ARTS is to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes on all public roads; regardless of jurisdiction. ARTS projects are selected and prioritized using a data-driven approach incorporating crash data analysis, known risk factors, and other data-supported methods to identify locations to achieve the most benefit with available funding.​

​The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP funding allocation for the All Roads Transportation Safety Program is $27,465,000. ​
Pavement Preservation Program projects improve the safety of the state highway system by improving conditions related to the roadway surface (ruts, slick surfaces, drainage problems, cracks, and potholes) as well as funding a limited number of safety items like durable striping, guardrail, roadside obstacle removal, and slope flattening. Project selection is driven by the Pavement Management System, which tracks pavement conditions.

The 2021-2024 STIP Preservation Program includes $35,800,000 for projects within Region 1.​

The Interstate Maintenance Program provides funding for resurfacing, restoring, rehabilitating, and reconstructing most routes on the Interstate System. The program is similar to the Preservation program; however, funds in the program must be spent on the interstate system. A significant portion of the Region’s Interstate Maintenance and Preservation projects are in urban areas where traffic conditions affect the hours available for construction and the mobilization of construction teams during off-peak hours. This in turn leads to higher costs for construction in urban areas compared to projects in rural areas.

​​​The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP funding allocation for the Interstate Maintenance Program is $23,942,994​.​

Culvert Program projects create, replace or enhance culverts to provide safe passage for fish or wildlife under Oregon roads and bridges.​

The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP funding allocation for the Culvert Program is $3,205,051​

ODOT’s Bridge Program identifies projects for funding that extend the service life of existing bridges, and, where that is not cost effective, bridge replacements. Typical bridge projects include: rehabilitation work like deck overlays, concrete repair, scour repair; safety upgrades like bridge rail replacements and screening; preservation treatments like steel bridge painting and cathode protection installed to prevent corrosion of steel reinforcement. Bridge projects are selected based on condition information from the ODOT Bridge Management System and ODOT bridge engineers, along with input from Region Bridge Maintenance crews. Final project prioritization for OTC consideration is done by the Bridge Program Manager and region leadership.​

​​The 2021-2024 STIP Bridge Program includes $64,310,047 for projects within Region 1 on the state highway system and $29,396,378 for bridge projects on local roads.​

Operations Program projects improve safety and increase operational efficiencies on the state highway system. There are four sub-program areas in the Operations program: Intelligent Transportation Systems; Signs, Signals and Illumination; Slides and Rockfalls; and Transportation Demand Management.​

The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP funding allocation for the Operations Program is $22,893,670​​.


The OTC created three leverage programs that provide the opportunity to add features to Fix-It projects: Active Transportation Leverage, Safety Leverage and State Highway Leverage. In Region 1, leverage opportunities/potential projects are identified during the scoping process for the Fix-It program. 

  • Active Transportation Leverage funds the enhancement and addition of active transportation features to other identified projects on the state transportation system. Active transportation includes bicycle, pedestrian, public transportation projects and connections to and between them. The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP includes $7,476,000 of Active Transportation Leverage.
  • Safety Leverage funds add safety features to projects on the State Highway System. Non-highway enhancement projects are not eligible for these funds. The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP includes $10,680,000 of Safety Leverage.
  • State Highway Leverage funds the enhancement of features and elements to Fix-It projects of the State Highway System. Non-highway enhancement projects are not eligible for these funds. The Region 1 2021-2024 STIP includes $8,483,573 of State Highway Leverage.


Region 1 encompasses the greater Portland metro area.  

ODOT Region 1 encompasses all of Hood River and Multnomah counties, as well as most of Clackamas and Washington counties. The Region has the largest population in the state. In addition, Oregon’s largest port district, intermodal freight terminals, and the state’s only international airport also are in Region 1.
