After more than 10 years of design and construction, the project teams on the OTIA III State Bridge Delivery Program have amassed a trove of knowledge on innovative program management and delivery. As the program moves toward completion, we are often invited by industry peers to share what we’ve learned.
Wireless Communications Section introduces centralized work order desk

Developing efficiencies, streamlining processes and providing top-notch customer service are all goals successful businesses strive for, and the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Wireless Communications Section is no exception.
What began as a special project is soon to become a permanent change in business practice: introducing the new and improved Wireless Work Order Desk. The centralized, streamlined process will provide the best service in the most efficient way.
Through a central phone number and email address for requests from around the state, specialists are able to allocate the right resource to fulfill the customer’s request. Larry Jarvi, Jenni Klug and Calvin Brown share the responsibility of running the day-to-day operations of the work order desk.




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 late 2014.
