Alaska DOT&PF Kicks Off 2023 Construction Season

ANCHORAGE, AK — Alaskans will see over 140 transportation improvement projects this summer, upgrading trails, airports, docks, roads and highways, sidewalks, and bike lanes in 64 communities. Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is also unveiling several new public information tools that travelers can use to learn more about the improvements planned for their communities.

The department’s new Alaska Project Exchange (APEX) includes the following tools: 

  • 511 Traffic Information: All road traffic impacts from construction projects will now be integrated into the Alaska 511 system, including, the 511 Alaska mobile app, and by calling 5-1-1.
  • APEX map: Throughout the season, the public can access detailed project information including project scopes, timelines, contact information, maps, and links to more information. The map can be accessed at
  • Social Media: DOT&PF is increasing the department’s social media presence and utilizing search engines such as Google, in addition to traditional media advertising.

“We’re investing in our transportation network across the state — across all modes,” said Ryan Anderson, Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities. “These improvements support Alaskans, through safety improvements, increased access, and better facilities for multiple modes of travel, allowing Alaskans to get to where they want to go.”

“Alaskans will start to see increased investment in transportation infrastructure this year,” said Governor Mike Dunleavy. “We are focusing on projects for Alaska that improve safety, support our economy, make our network more durable, and more affordable.”
