Southwest Alaska Transportation Plan

The Southwest Alaska Transportation Plan (SWATP) is a 20-year regional transportation plan used to guide future public investments in transportation infrastructure. The state regularly reevaluates regional transportation needs and possible projects that serve the economy and population of the area. The study area consists of the Lake and Peninsula Borough, Kodiak Island Borough, Aleutians East Borough (AEB), Aleutians West Borough, Bristol Bay Borough (BBB), and some areas outside the organized boroughs (the communities of the Aleutian chain, Dillingham Census Area, Adak, and the Pribilof Islands). As a regional area plan, the focus of the SWATP will be on regional transportation needs, such as movements between communities and in and out of the region.
