Contract Progress and Payment Records

70 cu.ft.
Arrangement: numerically by contract number

Series documents actions taken to execute contracts between the Oregon Highway Department and various contractors. Series also documents authorization for payment (usually from the State Highway Fund). Types of work include new construction and maintenance of roads, highways, and associated improvements such as culverts, bridges, and tunnels. Records include correspondence, memoranda, invoices, maps, price lists, extra work orders, estimates, payment authorizations, and related documents.

The records are arranged numerically by contract number, which corresponds generally with chronological by contract let date. Contract numbers usually can be obtained by research in the Highway Commission meeting minutes and indexes documented in the Transportation Commission Meeting Minutes records series.
