PORTLAND — ODOT plans two Portland-area open house meetings in February and April to give the public a look at the draft 2021-2024 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program.

The program, also known as the STIP, is ODOT’s to-do list, the capital improvement program for state and federally-funded projects. The list spells out how these funds will be spent around the state.

The two open houses will provide an opportunity for the public to view the lists and talk with ODOT staffers in advance of upcoming Region 1 Area Commission on Transportation meetings. The meetings are scheduled for:

 

Monday, Feb. 3

4:30 to 5:30 p.m. 

Oregon Department of Transportation

123 NW Flanders

Portland, OR 97209

 

Monday, April 6

4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Port of Cascade Locks Pavilion

395 SW Portage Road

Cascade Locks, OR 97014

 

While the 2021-2024 list is nearly complete, the 2024-2027 program will kick off in July 2020. If you have ideas for projects for inclusion in the next round, you can submit them to the program website, Oregon.gov/ODOT/STIP. You can also sign-up for program updates.

The money will be allocated among several major categories, including projects that preserve the existing system, that enhance or expand the system, that improve safety and that upgrade non-highway projects, including bicycle, pedestrian and public transit projects.

Some programs direct funding to local governments so they can decide their own priorities.

Final federal approval of the 2021-2024 list is expected by September 2020.
