State Radio Project
The State Radio Project team is focusing on the trunked radio system cutover process, a huge effort for the project as a whole that has involved years of planning. The cutover will bring the trunked radio system and the console system together. Both systems are operating well individually, and integrating them is a very complex endeavor.
"Every step for a successful cutover was planned down to the smallest detail, but it's only through testing that you find out where the incongruences are," said Lisa Strader, State Radio Project assistant manager. "When you think about the system operating for the next 20 years or more, taking a little extra time to get it right is worth it."
The radio project's civil site construction work in April included breaking ground on the new Doherty Slide site in Lake County.
Status updates for May are available on the State Radio Project website, along with project information and resources.

Oregon Passenger Rail Study Continues
The project is currently in the Evaluate phase. This phase takes the corridor concepts developed in the Understand phase and screens them in two steps. First, the corridor concepts are screened against the project Purpose and Need. Then, the concepts that pass the first screen will go through a more detailed evaluation against a set of criteria. The results will be published in a Draft Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement that will be available for public review in 2016.
