Oregon Prepares To Expand Electric Vehicle Charging

(Salem, OR) -- ODOT is preparing to expand Oregon's network to charge electric vehicles. Transportation officials say 100-million dollars the state received from the 2021 federal infrastructure package will go to expand EV charging stations along seven highway corridors. The expansion will be focused on smaller and rural communities as well to encourage EV sales and tourism. Oregon has set a goal of having 90-percent of all new car sales to be electric vehicles by 2035.
