|Statewide Transportation Improvement Program|
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) includes a lot of money for transportation—more than half a trillion dollars. What does it mean for Oregon?
Find out by attending a webinar on December 7, from 9-10:30 a.m. where ODOT will walk through the additional $1.2 billion the IIJA will invest in Oregon’s transportation system.
You will also have the opportunity to give your input on how the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) should spend the additional funding to further Oregon’s transportation goals.
We’ll spend the first half of the webinar walking through the IIJA and answering questions and we’ll spend the second half taking public input on two key questions:
Given the investments already made in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program and the federal infrastructure bill, how should the OTC allocate flexible funding to best advance the OTC/ODOT Strategic Action Plan and the state’s transportation goals?
What are the specific priorities for investment of funds in public and active transportation?
When: Tuesday, December 7, 9-10:30 a.m.
