The Motor Carrier Transportation Division is closing its registration offices at three ports of entry into Oregon this year and is replacing over-the-counter services with phone services for registration and overdimension permit services.

The registration office at Farewell Bend near the Idaho border will switch to phone services by June 1. The offices at Ashland near the California border and at Umatilla near the Washington border will switch by Oct. 1.

Size and weight enforcement, Green Light weigh station preclearance and safety inspection activities will continue as usual. The Portland Bridge Office will continue to provide over-the-counter registration and overdimension permit services.
