Alaska DOT&PF Announces 2022-2025 CTP & TAP Community Project Awards
Will improve transportation infrastructure, safety, and connectivity.

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) announces the 2022-2025 Community Transportation Program (CTP) and Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) awards.

“The CTP and TAP programs enhance transportation infrastructure, promote safety, and improve connectivity across Alaska,” said DOT&PF Commissioner Ryan Anderson.“

Community Transportation Program (CTP): The CTP focuses on the development of facilities that benefit Alaskan communities. These projects include new or existing surface transportation facilities that enhance travel and tourism, reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions, and improve air quality. Additionally, the CTP supports initiatives that connect different transportation modes, such as roads and trails.

Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP): TAP provides funding for smaller-scale transportation projects that directly impact active transportation, pedestrian safety, and bicycle facilities. Projects eligible for TAP funding include the construction of turnouts, overlooks, viewing areas, recreational trails, safe routes to school, and assessments for vulnerable road users.

Communities submitted project applications by spring 2023. In December 2023, the CTP & TAP DOT&PF Project Evaluation Board (PEB) assessed, scored, and ranked the potential projects. Their recommendations were forwarded to the DOT&PF Commissioner for final funding decisions. These decisions were based on available funds for population suballocations, as outlined in 17 AAC 05.175(i).

The below tables outline the projects slated to receive "Intent to Award" letters from DOT&PF. However, the execution of final grant agreements is contingent upon the approval of the 2024-2027 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The STIP, currently awaiting approval from the Federal Highways Administration and Federal Transit Administration, provides detailed information on funding amounts and project specifics and can be reviewed here.

Transportation planners will soon engage with community officials to initiate the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) process for these projects. The MOA ensures effective collaboration and coordination between DOT&PF and local stakeholders.

“These projects represent the department’s commitment to improving transportation infrastructure and safety for all Alaskans, Anderson added. “We look forward to working closely with communities to bring these vital initiatives to fruition.”
