State Radio Project
The State Radio Project continues to wrap up site construction work. During October, the project issued notice to proceed for five sites for additional work like ice bridge installations and electrical upgrades. Of these five sites, the work at Applegate Butte and Swan Lake Point fulfills the project's partnership obligation with Klamath County.
Other site work during the month included excavating a trench at Blue Mountain in Malheur County in preparation for installing an underground power conduit from the old equipment shelter to the new equipment shelter.
Status updates for October 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.
