SALEM - The Oregon Transportation Commission named retired Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Highway Division Administrator Paul Mather as ODOT Interim Deputy Director at a special meeting of the Commission in Salem.

His tenure began Monday, July 1.

The Oregon Transportation Commission is the governing board of the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).

"It is an opportunity that is bittersweet," said Commission Chair Tammy Baney. "It’s a time of transition when we must find someone who holds the trust and confidence of those at ODOT. Given the relationships Mr. Mather has with stakeholders and the Legislature – I have trust and confidence in his ability to move forward with the intentions of the OTC. He has a deep understanding of the projects in front of us. He is the right person at the right time."
