ATV Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee

ATV Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee

In 2017 the Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill 344, which directs the Oregon State Parks Department (OPRD) to develop an Advisory Committee to review potential ATV use on STATE Highways (not county or city roads). This will take effect in January of 2018. Currently OPRD and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) are working on developing the process to review proposals.
The intent is to look at connections from towns which already allow ATV use on local street to OHV riding areas. Often this will occur in rural and remote areas with low traffic levels and reduced speed limits. Often only short sections on STATE Highways need to be designated to make these connections.
The ATV Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee’s purpose is to accept and evaluate proposed all-terrain vehicle highway access routes on portions of state highway rights of way; conduct field reviews of proposed  all-terrain vehicle highway access routes and  submit a report to Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Transportation Commission and may include recommendations related to ATV access on state highways.
