Pioneering Planning Effort
Federal land management agencies in Alaska (the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service), together with the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), pioneered the effort to develop a multi-agency long range transportation plan (LRTP) for Federal lands in the state. This plan facilitates the strategic identification and prioritization of transportation infrastructure and systems needed.
This LRTP helps Federal land managers and the ADOT&PF make better funding decisions for transportation facilities that provide access to and within public lands in Alaska. This document does not identify specific projects for implementation or suggest changes in the way Federal lands resources are managed. Rather, it serves as a tool to collectively engage the various agencies on how they can work together to set statewide transportation priorities and leverage funds to meet transportation needs for Alaska’s Federal lands.
