From the Oregon DOT Website:

In 2012 and 2013, Oregon is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Oregon Department of Transportation, which began life as the “Oregon Highway Department” in 1913. Since the beginning, Oregonians have been leaders in transportation, creating award-winning bicycle and pedestrian programs, finishing cross-state highways ahead of others and, in its inaugurating effort: “Getting Oregon out of the mud.”

The Oregon Department of Transportation was established in 1969 to provide a safe, efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity and livable communities for Oregonians. ODOT develops 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.

ODOT is actively involved in developing Oregon's system of highways and bridges, public transportation services, rail passenger and freight systems, and bicycle and pedestrian paths. ODOT manages driver licensing and vehicle registration programs, motor carrier operations, and transportation safety programs.
