State Radio Project

The State Radio Project team spent June prepareing for the VHF integration cutover to operational mode. VHF integration is the process of combining the existing analog VHF system, the console system and the new digital trunked radio system to operate seamlessly.   

"We feel very prepared for the first cutover happening in mid-July," said Lisa Strader, State Radio Project assistant manager. The team spent many weeks detailing and finalizing the cutover plan. 

The radio project's civil site work continues, and the last contracts are in place for work on the remaining sites. Active site construction continued in June at Doherty Slide, Applegate Butte and Buxton Mountain. 

Status updates for July 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.
