Escrow Checks Message

ODOT’s highest priority is the safety of our employees and those traveling on the road. With CDC guidelines encouraging social distancing, ODOT is currently NOT taking walk-in escrow checks from our customers. We realize this is a short-term inconvenience, but as a state agency we must do all we can to limit exposure to our team and reduce the spread of COVID-19. In lieu of dropping off escrow checks in person, you can send them to the following address:
