South Central Oregon Area Commission on Transportation

The South Central Oregon Area Commission on Transportation (SCOACT) is an advisory body chartered under the authority of the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC). The SCOACT participates in all aspects of transportation planning and project development (surface, marine, air, and transportation safety) with its primary focus on the development of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). Through the STIP process, the SCOACT prioritizes transportation problems and solutions considering regional and local issues that affect the system. The SCOACT then recommends projects in the area to be included in the STIP. The ACT is guided by the policy adopted by the OTC for the Formation and Operation of Area Commissions on Transportation (ACT’s).
