DOT&PF Seeks Alaskans' Input for Strong & Safe
Transportation Infrastructure

(JUNEAU, Alaska) —The public can weigh in on long-range transportation plans with Alaska Moves 2050, the Long-Range Transportation and Freight Plan. Alaska Moves 2050 provides the long-term vision, policies, and decision-making framework that will guide the development of Alaska’s transportation system over the coming years, as well as maintain and improve the freight transportation system.

“We want to hear from all Alaskans on the future that the Long Range Transportation Plan describes. We want to hear their vision, their priorities for investment, and actions the State should take to achieve both. This is a huge opportunity to create a shared vision that will shape transportation in Alaska for years to come.” said James Marks, DOT&PF Director of Planning & Program Development.

The public is encouraged to view a self-guided virtual public meeting to learn more about the draft Alaska Moves 2050 plan, its goals and actions needed to create a strong and safe transportation system that works for all Alaskans and submit comments about the draft plans: https://arcg.is/15vmm2. This site will be available through October 31, 2022.
