State Radio Project
In August, the State Radio Project reached substantial completion at the Glass Butte site in Lake County, where crews performed microwave installations and tower reinforcement work. Also in Lake County, ongoing construction at Doherty Slide involved radio tower assembly with the help of a large crane.
Additional radio project site work during August included a solar installation at Bald Mountain in Polk County, antenna installations at Klamath County's Applegate Butte and site expansion activities at Buxton Mountain in Washington County.
Status updates for August are available on the State Radio Project website, along with project information and resources.

Oregon Passenger Rail Study Continues
The Oregon Passenger Rail 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.
