About the Oregon Department of Transportation
The Oregon Department of Transportation began life in 1913 when the Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Highway Commission to “get Oregon out of the mud.” Today, the Oregon Department of Transportation works to provide a safe, efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity and livable communities for Oregonians. We develop programs related to Oregon’s system of highways, roads, and bridges; railways; public transportation services; transportation safety programs; driver and vehicle licensing; and motor carrier regulation.
