Transportation Infrastructure Development & Project Delivery Administrator 2 – Toll Division Administrator
Oregon Department of Transportation
Salary Range: $10,935 – $16,931
Bring your tolling expertise to Oregon! We are recruiting for the toll division administrator to lead all elements of our efforts to develop and implement a successful toll program to improve Oregon’s transportation system. You will direct the efforts to deliver the entirety of our program, from developing toll projects through planning, environmental review and traffic and revenue analysis, while also delivering the back office and customer service systems that will be central to toll operations.
Oregon’s program will be unique in many ways: we envision tolling as integrated into our per-mile road usage charging program, which is leading the nation in replacing the gas tax as it fades away, and it will be designed to ensure equity through deployment of a low-income toll program on opening day. In this role, you will have a unique opportunity to help fund critical projects that renew and improve Oregon’s infrastructure including the Interstate Bridge Replacement Project and the I-5 Rose Quarter, both among the worst traffic jams in the nation, and meet Oregon’s vision for safe, efficient, sustainable and equitable mobility.
The ideal candidate will have experience working in tolling and transportation project delivery, particularly working with government officials, partners, and the public to develop and implement major projects involving tolls or operating a toll system. Apply today!
