East/West Regional Connections Project

The Oregon Department of Transportation and Washington County (in a partnership project) is now beginning construction of the next phase of ODOT RealTime, a system that provides real-time traffic information on roads to help travelers get where they're going more safely and efficiently. The latest project will implement ODOT RealTime between Washington County, central Portland and the Portland Airport.

This expanded system will improve road safety and help drivers make better informed decisions about their travel routes.
