Construction Projects to Move Forward
Four projects paused in 2016 are restarted, effective immediately.

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – This week, the Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) was given the go-ahead to resume design and construction on four large-scale transportation projects across the state. The projects, which will be funded through General Obligation Bonds, were paused in 2016 as the state focused on solving the fiscal crisis.

"As the legislature moves toward building a firm foundation of fiscal stability for the state, it's time to invest in the projects that put more Alaskans back to work," said Governor Bill Walker. "I'm confident legislators will pass the cornerstone of a sustainable fiscal plan."

DOT&PF will resume work on these projects immediately:

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 237 airports, 10 ferries serving 35 communities, more than 5,600 miles of highway and 776 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the department is to “Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”
