How Transportation Funding Works in Oregon


Ever wanted to know how state and local transportation funding decisions are made?

There was a great interview on the Jefferson Exchange with ODOT’s Travis Brouwer about the role of Area Commissions on Transportation (ACT).

Area Commissions on Transportation are advisory bodies chartered by the Oregon Transportation Commission. ACTs address all aspects of transportation (surface, marine, air, and transportation safety) with primary focus on the state transportation system. ACTs consider regional and local transportation issues if they affect the state system. They work with other local organizations dealing with transportation-related issues. -ODOT
