The Central Region Maintenance & Operations (M&O) Division is headquartered in the Department of Transportation & Public Facilities building located at 4111 Aviation Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska.
Central Region M&O is led by a Maintenance & Operations Chief, and staffed by 184 full-time or part-time/seasonal M&O personnel, including managers, foremen, equipment operators and various administrative workers. The M&O management includes one Region Manager, four District Superintendents and a Regional Safety Officer.
The Central Region’s M&O response territory is divided into four districts: Matanuska-Susitna, Anchorage, Kenai Peninsula, and Southwest.
There are 20 Maintenance Stations in the Central Region M&O system, each situated and staffed to handle the primary highway, airport, building, and equipment maintenance needs of adjacent segments of Central Alaska’s transportation infrastructure.
The Region maintains over 4,630 lane miles of roads and over 570 lane miles of runways. It cares for 70 airports. This consists of four primary airports located in Aniak, Bethel, Dillingham, and Homer. Of these, Bethel, Dillingham, and Homer airports are certificated by the FAA under the federal government’s Part 139 regulations and operated to meet those crucial standards and guidelines. Local contractors maintain 46 of the Region’s smaller, community airports, while ADOT&PF CR maintenance crews manage the other airports – generally via access from the State’s road system.
Central Region is also responsible for maintenance and operations of the Whittier Tunnel, the longest highway tunnel in North America at 2.5 miles. The tunnel is located approximately 50 miles south of Anchorage connecting the City of Whittier with the Portage Valley.
