Travel Experience

OTE’s programs enhance the public’s motoring experience and community economic development by helping travelers navigate to essential services, attractions and points of historic interest. The agency is responsible for the operation of 29 highway safety rest areas at 17 locations around the state under an interagency agreement with the Oregon Department of Transportation. OTE administers the statewide “Blue Logo” Sign Program and information centers that identify gas, food, lodging and attractions on highways throughout Oregon, and leads the Oregon Heritage Tree and Oregon Historical Marker programs.
