The Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) released the final version of A Strategic Investment in Transportation report to highlight needs across the transportation system and present a menu of options for strategic investment in Oregon. This investment will help protect our existing highway assets and investments, make our system more seismically resilient and safer overall, mitigate congestion, and provide public transportation as well as transportation options for the movement of freight and people. Different levels of investment are described for today’s spending (status quo), a moderate increase in investment (Investment Scenario I), and the full need (Investment Scenario II). Strategies are designed to maximize transportation efficiencies, including multimodal mobility and access improvements that would benefit all users of the system, improving equity and benefiting the economy.
