ConnectOregon, created by the Oregon Legislature in 2005, uses Oregon Lottery-backed bond dollars to leverage local funding of non-highway projects throughout the state. Since its inception, ConnectOregon has put $417 million back into Oregon communities for rail, aviation, marine, public transit, bicycle/pedestrian and multimodal projects.
The overall investment in ConnectOregon leverages nearly $605 million in other funds and supports connections and better integrated transportation. This in turn improves the flow of commerce and promotes economic development.
