Value Pricing Project Manager - Project Manager 3
Highway Division – Region 1
ODOT Major Projects Unit analyzes and resolves policy implications for new, often complex and controversial, ODOT programs. We are recruiting for a value pricing feasibility analysis project manager to oversee the development of highway projects from concept to completion. Value pricing, also known as congestion or peak-period pricing, is a type of tolling in which a higher price is set for driving on a road when demand is greater. The goal is to reduce congestion and provide more reliable travel times for paying users. The person in this position will make recommendations for business line improvements and will direct project scope, timelines, funding, priorities, and expectations.
