As 2014 comes to a close, the State Radio Project wraps up its busiest year of the project's three construction seasons. Project and Wireless Communications Section Staff and contractors are working to finish as many sites as possible before winter weather makes access to some high elevations difficult.
By Nov. 1, the project was 85 percent complete with bid package development, site acquisition and procurement. During 2014 the radio project completed civil site work on 60 sites around the state.
In 2015 the project's focus shifts to technology implementation, with the Wireless Section taking the lead microwave and trunking systems installation.
