State Radio Project


Winter weather substantially shut down civil site work on the State Radio Project by the beginning of December, but only after a construction and installation season that exceeded project goals. By the end of the month, work was in place to accommodate the remaining trunked radio system and VHF integration equipment installations and begin testing the new technology as a system.

The project team is organizing the remaining work scheduled for 2016 to meet the June 30 end-date for the Major Projects Section's delivery team.

"There is still a fair amount of microwave equipment to install, so if the snowmelt is later than normal, some work may push past our projected end date," says Dick Upton, State Radio Project manager. The ODOT Wireless Communications Section is prepared to finish any remaining work.

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.
