Connect Oregon VI

Connect Oregon is a lottery-backed bond initiative to invest in air, rail, marine, transit and bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure to ensure Oregon's transportation system is strong, diverse and efficient.  Connect Oregon projects are eligible for up to 70% of project costs for grants.  A minimum of 30% cash match is required from the recipient for all grant-funded projects.

ODOT received approximately $90 million in funding applications for $45 million in Connect Oregon VI funding.  These applications represent approximately $200 million in new transportation projects.
