Federal Highway Administration Approves Alaska DOT&PF STIP

ANCHORAGE, AK — The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration issued an approval of the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) four-year spending plan. FHWA identified six out of the 234 projects and programs submitted, to be addressed in subsequent amendments.

The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), represents over $5 billion of transportation investment in the state, including upgrades to Alaska’s highways, bridges, ferries, transit systems, bike lanes, pedestrian facilities, and safety improvements.

“We appreciate the federal agencies considerable engagement on the ... submittal, and the DOT&PF staff for putting together this new STIP in record time,” DOT&PF Commissioner Ryan Anderson said. “Alaska’s project development will continue seamlessly, and our upcoming construction season will be robust.”

DOT&PF will consult with FHWA on the six remaining projects and programs, as well as the federal findings for future STIP amendments and project approvals.

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 237 airports, nine ferries serving 35 communities, over 5,600 miles of highway, and 839 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the department is to “Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”
