State Radio Project
Construction continued on eight State Radio Project sites in July, and Grizzly Mountain and Medicine Mountain reached substantial completion. Work includes a solar installation at Bald Mountain, a new concrete foundation for a tower at Doherty Slide, bollard and conduit installation at Grizzly Mountain, a snorkel installation at Medicine Mountain, site expansion work at Buxton Mountain and additional site work at Applegate Butte. Crews continue with punch-list items at Wampus Butte and Table Mountain.
The 11 wireless infrastructure management system proof-of-performance units are operating as expected, and the next shipment of 40 units arrived in July.
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.
