Alaska DOT&PF Awarded $87M in Federal Highway Redistribution Funding

JUNEAU, AK — Over $87 million was pumped into Alaska’s economy when Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) received redistribution funds from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

Redistribution is a mechanism to redistribute funding authority to states that demonstrated they have met 100 percent of their federal allocation and have further, unfunded, federally eligible transportation needs.

“We’re putting this money into our construction programs to make way for new investment,” said Ryan Anderson, DOT&PF Commissioner. “Alaska is geared up to build projects that address safety and fix our existing infrastructure.”

The $87-million redistribution set a record for Alaska, outpacing the previous 2015 record of $76 million. The average redistribution over the past five years is $43.5 million, making this year’s redistribution a 100 percent increase over the five-year average.

The redistribution funding will be applied to seven projects, including:

  • Airport Way (West) Improvements
  • CY 22/23 AMATS Unified Planning Work Program
  • Dalton Highway MP 17-38 (Hess Creek) Reconstruction
  • Dowling Road & Seward Highway Interchange
  • Knik Goose Bay Road Reconstruction Phase 1
  • Richardson Highway MP 159-167
  • Sterling Highway 45-60
